Fivemiletown's Chris Farrell has been named in the Ireland team to face Wales in the NatWest 6 Nations at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow.

Centre Farrell, who plays for Munster, slots in for Robbie Henshaw, now sidelined for up to four months after a dislocated shoulder.

The former Ulster midfielder won both his Test caps in Ireland’s autumn campaign, and will link up with Bundee Aki again as the centre partnership.

Ireland will be looking to maintain their 100 percent record by securing their third win of the competition having beaten France and Italy so far.
