Ireland Head Coach Andy Farrell has made six changes for Saturday's final Autumn Nations Cup game against Scotland at the Aviva Stadium. 

The uncapped Ulster prop Eric O’Sullivan, who was called up to the squad in recent weeks, is set to make his debut after being named amongst the replacements.

Johnny Sexton returns to captain the side and is re-united with Conor Murray at half-back.

Robbie Henshaw and Bundee Aki also come into the backline to form the centre pairing.

The back three is unchanged from last weekend’s win over Georgia, with Jacob Stockdale at fullback and Keith Earls and Hugo Keenan on the wings.

In the pack, it's a front row of Cian Healy, Rob Herring and Andrew Porter.

James Ryan and Iain Henderson continue in the second row and the back row is made up of Peter O’Mahony, CJ Stander and Caelan Doris.
