IRELAND RUGBY BOSS Declan Kidney has named a new-look side for the non-cap international against Fiji in Limerick this weekend.

Jamie Heaslip will again lead the team — despite his sin-binning last time out against the Springboks.

Mike Ross and Conor Murray have also been retained from that game.

Young Ulster kicker Paddy Jackson gets his chance and will partner the Munster scrum half.  The back three is made up of the uncapped Craig Gilroy on the left with Fergus McFadden on the right and Denis Hurley at fullback.

Ireland lost to South Africa at the Aviva Stadium last Saturday and will face Argentina in Dublin next week.

Ireland team (v Fiji): D Hurley, F McFadden, D Cave, L Marshall, C Gilroy, P Jackson, C Murray, D Kilcoyne, S Cronin, M Ross, D O’Callaghan, D Tuohy, I Henderson, J Muldoon, J Heaslip.

Replacements: R Strauss, C Healy, M Bent, D Ryan, C Henry, P Marshall, J Sexton, S Zebo.
