Strong bench gives Ireland the edge over Scotland as Tadhg Furlong returns

Stuart Mc Inally salutes the crowd at Murrayfield

Blair Kinghorn will replace Tommy Seymour in the only change to Scotland's starting line-up for Saturday's Six Nations match against Ireland in Dublin.

There is no risk this week with the head coach declaring the Ulster and Lions second row fully fit again despite his involvement being limited to a place among Ireland's replacements.

Twenty-three year old Ringrose replaces the injured Chris Farrell at outside centre and will partner Bundee Aki, while Furlong has recovered from a hamstring injury and regains his place in the front row instead of Andrew Porter.

Henderson had been tipped to slot straight back into the side but Schmidt has kept faith with his most-selected player in Toner.

He added, "Honestly, I wanted [for] her that opportunity to be the potential Bachelorette ". Our bet's on Brian and his banjo .

"Garry's only had six games in this entire season", coach Joe Schmidt said.

Ireland can win the Six Nations title if they beat the Scots and better England's result against France in Paris.

"It is just a case of trying to keep a balance", said Schmidt. The big, burly Munster centre sustained a knee injury during training recently.

Ringrose has not played for Ireland this season due to shoulder and ankle issues, but returns to join Bundee Aki in midfield for the first time.
