Ireland captain Johnny Sexton has been picked to the starting XV for Saturday’s Six Nations match against England at Twickenham.
Sexton returns to the line-up at fly-half for the Round Four battle, and he is joined in the half-backs by in-form scrum-half Jamison Gibson-Park.
Sexton came off the bench in the 57-6 round-three triumph against Italy after being sidelined with a slight injury in the previous round’s loss to Grand Slam contender France.
The 36-year-old replaces Joey Carbery, who signed a contract extension and announced his retirement after the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
Bundee Aki returns to the center position to partner Garry Ringrose, while Andrew Conway and full-back Hugo Keenan are also back alongside James Lowe.
