Tadhg Furlong and Iain Henderson ruled for Ireland in Six Nations

Ireland vs Wales: TV channel, live stream, team news and kick-off time for the Six Nations clash

The Ireland team to play Wales on Saturday shows five changes from the win over Italy.

The Munster centre will pick up his third global cap when he takes to the pitch for Joe Schmidt's side who will be hoping to maintain their Grand Slam aspirations with a third successive victory after beating France and Italy.

Chris Farrell is expected to come in for Robbie Henshaw at outside centre after the Leinster man's injury against the Azzurri, while CJ Stander resumes Test duties at the base of the scrum, with Jack Conan among the replacements.

Farrell picked up a knee injury during only his second ever Ireland appearance against the South Americans in that match, but he has overcome that knock to force his way back into the global side. We are a lot more focused on what we do have.

The British and Irish Lions No.10 will make his first appearance for Wales in this year's Six Nations after suffering a shoulder injury playing for his club Ospreys in the European Rugby Champions Cup against Clermont Auvergne in January.

CJ Stander returns to the number 8 with Jack Conan among the replacements.

"We have been pleased with the depth we have developed in the back-three and pleased with how those players have gone, but having the experience of Dan, Liam and Leigh coming back in is hugely important. Yes, that is not ideal but at the same time if you want to learn what better environment in what will be a really white hot atmosphere in the Aviva on Saturday".

We also won against Ireland at home previous year.

They face an Ireland side on Saturday who have begun the competition with victories over France and Italy and top the Six Nations table, level on nine points with England, who have also won both their opening matches. What we do have is Andrew Porter who is a really promising young player who we are excited about.

"We thought on Tuesday he might well make it. The unknown is always a fear for pretty much any human being, and there is a little bit about the unknown going into this weekend". "He's a very talented player", Healy said about his fellow Leinster prop Porter.

"If you look at Ports firstly, over the previous year and a half what he's had to take in his stride, changing sides of the scrum, how he's developed that part of his game, it's more exciting than nervous to see what he's going to provide", the prop said.
