The Tralee-man started in the win against Italy and he came on towards the end of the victory over Scotland.

Sean Cronin has been dropped from the Ireland squad to be replaced by Ulster hooker Rob Herring.

Leinster’s Ross Byrne has been recalled with Jack Carty, Joey Carbery and Johnny Sexton the other out-halves.

Connacht scrum-half Kieran Marmion also returns but Robbie Henshaw remains out with a leg injury.
