Ireland have named their team to face England at Twickenham on Saturday in their second Rugby World Cup warm-up game.

Rory Best returns to captain the side which includes several players making their first start of the season.

Best is joined in the front row by Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong.

Jean Kleyn, who made his debut against Italy earlier this month, will partner Iain Henderson in the second row.

The back row is made up of Peter O’Mahony, Josh van der Flier and CJ Stander.

Ross Byrne will win his 3rd international cap, having previously featured against Italy and the USA in 2018.

Byrne starts at fly-half outside the returning Conor Murray while Bundee Aki and Garry Ringrose form the centre pairing.

Rob Kearney starts at fullback with Jordan Larmour and Jacob Stockdale on the wings.

Jack Carty, who replaced the injured Joey Carbery against Italy two weeks ago, is named among the replacements.
