Ireland Team To Face All Blacks Named

Lowe and Hansen named to start, Joe McCarthy and Jimmy O Brien on bench

Mack Hansen has been passed fit to start Ireland's Rugby World Cup quarter-final against New Zealand on Saturday, but James Ryan misses out through injury.

Hansen appears to have recovered from the calf injury sustained in the 36-14 win against Scotland, and is part of an unchanged starting line up.

Ryan's wrist injury sees him miss out with Joe McCarthy taking his place on the bench and Jimmy O'Brien also comes into the replacements for his first appearance of the tournament.


Ireland: Hugo Keenan; Mack Hansen, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki, James Lowe; Jonathan Sexton (capt), Jamison Gibson-Park; Andrew Porter, Dan Sheehan, Tadhg Furlong; Tadgh Beirne, Iain Henderson; Peter O'Mahony, Josh van der Flier, Caelan Doris.

Replacements: Ronan Kelleher, Dave Kilcoyne, Finlay Bealham, Joe McCarthy, Jack Conan, Conor Murray, Jack Crowley, Jimmy O'Brien
