Leinster duo Jonathan Sexton and Eoin Reddan will form the half-back partnership.
There is a new front row combination with Marcus Horan and Tom Court on either side of John Fogarty, who won his first cap against New Zealand last Saturday.
Another debutant from that game, Dan Tuohy, will start against the Maori, partnering his Ulster colleague Ed O'Donoghue in the second row.
The freshly-arrived Rhys Ruddock will get his first senior start for Ireland in the back row alongside Niall Ronan and another uncapped player, Chris Henry.
The game against the Maori, like the match against the Barbarians, is not a capped international. It will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 1 on Friday, with coverage beginning at 8.30am. IrishRugby.ie will also be covering the game via O2 MatchDay Live.
