Beirne to make Six Nations debut against Wales

Beirne to make Six Nations debut against Wales

Peter O'Mahony, CJ Stander, Conor Murray and Keith Earls are the other Munster players in the starting 15.

Wales will look to secure their first Grand Slam win since 2012 while Joe Schmidt's Ireland will look to keep their faint championship hopes alive and will need to rely on some help from Scotland against England if they are to defend their crown.

Wales are bidding for a third Grand Slam under Gatland, which would be a record for any Five or Six Nations coach if his players accomplish it.

Twenty seven-year-old Beirne replaces the injured Iain Henderson in Ireland's engine room for the game.

Warren Gatland has advised Eddie Jones to "concentrate on the Scotland match" after the England boss claimed Wales were showing signs of fatigue.

Ontario to ban smartphone use from public schools next year
British Columbia does not have a provincial policy on cellphone use in classrooms, so schools set their own rules. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) implemented a similar ban but it was reversed four years later.

Sean O'Brien slots in at openside flanker after a knock to Josh van der Flier early in the French game forced him off. Jack Conan who made a strong impact off the bench against the French once again provides back row cover on the bench. Cian Healy 2. Rory Best 3.

"He probably would have liked to have had a bit more game time leading into it but it's just a case of slotting people in", said Schmidt. And that's been a really positive challenge for us throughout the Six Nations, and still try to get some cohesion. I've got no comment on Eddie Jones talking about us.

The Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton half-back partnership remains intact, while Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose line out in the centre.

Jordan Larmour, who gave an impressive performance after standing in for Kearney against France, is on the replacements bench which also sees the return to the squad of scrum-half Kieran Marmion.
