Paul O'Connell will captain Ireland on Saturday in one of two changes made to the team that started against Scotland.

O'Connell was a late withdrawal from the Ireland team that begun their Six Nations opener against Scotland last Sunday as he was suffering from a chest infection. But he has recovered and takes his place in the second-row alongside Devin Toner with Dan Tuohy dropping to the bench.

Ireland boss Joe Schmidt has made one further change with Gordon D'Arcy recalled in the centres in place of Luke Marshall who drops out of the 23-man squad.

Ireland:

Rob Kearney, Andrew Trimble, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy, Dave Kearney, Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray, Cian Healy, Rory Best, Mike Ross, Devin Toner, Paul O'Connell (captain), Peter O'Mahony, Chris Henry, Jamie Heaslip

Replacements: Sean Cronin, Jack McGrath, Martin Moore, Dan Tuohy, Tommy O'Donnell, Isaac Boss, Paddy Jackson, Fergus McFadden
