Changes will not hamper Irish in their series win attempt

(Pictured, Rob Henshaw switches to 13 with inclusion of Bundi Aki)
JACK Conan comes in at eight for Ireland with O’Mahony moving to seven and Stander at six as Ireland prepare for the final series test against Australia at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Saturday (kick-off 11.05 Irish time).
Peter O’Mahony will captain the team while Limerick club players Keith Earls and Conor Murray also start. Former Shannon hooker Seanie Cronin gets a deserved call-up.
James Ryan and Devin Toner continue in the second row with Jack McGrath, Sean Cronin and Tadhg Furlong in the front row.
Rob Kearney is joined in the backfield by Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls. Robbie Henshaw reverts to outside centre with Bundee Aki lining out in the No. 12 jersey. Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton fill the halfback spots.
The replacements named are Niall Scannell, Cian Healy, John Ryan, Tadhg Beirne, Jordi Murphy, Kieran Marmion, Ross Byrne and Jordan Larmour.
The final game of the series will be broadcast live on Sky Sports (TV) and RTE 2FM (Radio). Supporters can follow all the news from the summer tour via the IRFU’s website and social media channels. Follow us on.
