Deserved call-up for Munster’s Andrew Conway

Andrew Conway

MUNSTER player Andrew Conway (pictured) gets a deserved call-up to international duty after being named on the bench for this Saturday’s RBS Six Nations game in the Aviva Stadium. Conor Murray misses the game through the hand injury picked up against Wales.
Devin Toner drops to the replacements with Ian Henderson starting while Jared Payne is named at full-back with Rob Henderson nursing an injury. John Ryan and Peter O’Mahony of Munster are also included on the bench.
Captain Rory Best wins his 104th cap for Ireland and is flanked by Jack McGrath and Tadhg Furlong in the front row with Iain Henderson coming in to partner Donnacha Ryan in the second row.
Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien and CJ Stander continue as the backrow combination with Kieran Marmion and Johnny Sexton combining at halfback. Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose start in the centre for the fifth consecutive Test match while Jared Payne comes into fullback with Keith Earls and Simon Zebo filling the wing positions.
The replacements for the Aviva clash are Niall Scannell, Cian Healy, John Ryan, Devin Toner, Peter O’Mahony, Luke McGrath, Paddy Jackson and Andrew Conway.
