Ireland v Fiji (Result)



Ireland have had the perfect start to the Internationals with a record win over the Springboks last week. They were yet again clinical in what they did and outsmart, outplayed and outwit the Springboks.

Ireland will see Chris Farrell make his debut at test level when they take on Fiji this Saturday. Conway will move to the number 15-jumper and Kearney returns to the side to make up the back three with Sweetman.

Fiji have included Nadolo in their side as he is one of four changes from last week team that lost to Italy.

Scrum-half Henry Senioli, centre Levani Botia and flanker Dominiko Waqaniboruto are the other new men coming into the team.

Prediction: Ireland should be easy winners of this one with +20 points
