The Ireland team to play the USA at the Aviva Stadium in the final Summer Test match on Saturday has been named.

There are eight changes to the fifteen that started last weekend's win against Japan.

Four of those are in the back-line with scrum-half Craig Casey partnering Joey Carbery in the half-back line instead of Jamison Gibson-Park.

Debutant Robert Balacoune and Andrew Conway start on the wings instead of Jordan Larmour and Jacob Stockdale while James Hume debuts at centre in place of Chris Farrell.

Two players will win their first internatioal caps in the pack with Tom O'Toole replacing Finlay Bealham in the front row and Nick Timony in for Josh van der Flier in the back row.

Second row Ultan Dillane makes way for Ryan Baird and with Caelan Doris shifting to blindside instead of Peter O'Mahony, Gavin Coombes gets a start at number eight.
