Veteran duo to face Wallabies

November 20, 2014 16:11:53 UK

Ireland have made two changes from the side that beat South Africa to the one who will face Australia on Saturday with Gordon D’Arcy and Rory Best coming into the starting XV.

The men in green go into this game on the back of wins over South Africa and Georgia and will be determined to keep up their winning momentum against the Wallabies.

Australia suffered a narrow defeat to France in Paris in their last outing and head to Dublin looking for a response.

Having impressed against Georgia, D’Arcy comes into the side and will partner Robbie Henshaw in the centres, while Best has been brought in to replace Sean Cronin at hooker.

Ireland XV: Rob Kearney; Tommy Bowe, Robbie Henshaw, Gordon D’Arcy, Simon Zebo; Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Jack McGrath, Rory Best, Mike Ross: Devin Toner, Paul O’Connell; Peter O’Mahony, Rhys Ruddock, Jamie Heaslip.

Ireland are 1.66 to win and 2.20 to lose to the Wallabies this weekend.
