Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt has named his team to face Scotland on the opening weekend of the Six Nations.

Sean O'Brien and Keith Earls have shrugged off their injuries, as they've both claimed starting berths.

O'Brien will come into the back-row alongside Leinster team-mate Jamie Heaslip as well as Munster's CJ Stander.

Earls will take his place on the wing, as Andrew Trimble has been ruled out of the game with an injury after not training this week and Schmidt told the press he's confident Trimble will be fit for the game against Italy.

As expected, Ulster's Paddy Jackson comes in for the injured Johnny Sexton.
