Ireland coach Declan Kidney has made four changes to his unbeaten side as they continue their Grand Slam quest. They’ll face a Scotland side containing Chris Paterson at full-back.
Jamie Heaslip, Jerry Flannery, Tomas O’Leary and Paddy Wallace are dropped from the Irish side, whilst Scotland suddenly have too many options in the second row.
