Ireland have named their team to play Fiji at Thomond Park on Saturday with three three uncapped players included in the starting XV alongside a number of new faces.

Mike Ross, Conor Murray and Ireland captain Jamie Heaslip have been retained from the team that started against South Africa last weekend.

Former Ireland U-20 Paddy Jackson will partner Murray in the half backs with his provincial colleagues Luke Marshall and Darren Cave forming the centre partnership outside him.

The back three comprises the uncapped Craig Gilroy on the left wing with Fergus McFadden on the right and Denis Hurley at fullback.

Up front David Kilcoyne, who won his first cap last weekend, completes the front row with Sean Cronin while Dan Tuohy and Donncha O'Callaghan make up the second row.

Heaslip anchors the scrum with Iain Henderson and John Muldoon named at 6 and 7.
