Andy Farrell has announced the Ireland line-up to face Wales on Saturday but he will be without Tadhg Furlong who is injured.
Ireland will kick off their Six Nations campaign against Wales on Saturday afternoon at the Principality stadium.
But Farrell will have to be without Furlong who has been suffering from a calf and ankle injury over the past few weeks. Taking his spot will be Finlay Bealham but Furlong could potentially be back in time to France next week.

Farrell has made two other changes to the side, with Johnny Sexton and James Lowe coming back into the team.
Big blow for Ireland, as Tadhg Furlong has been ruled out of the Six Nations opener against Wales.
Finlay Bealham starts, Tom O’Toole on the bench.
