The Celtic derby will see Mike Ross earn his 50th cap for Ireland, while stand-in captain Jamie Heaslip will become Ireland’s most-capped back row player with his 73rd appearance – one more than retired flanker David Wallace.

In hitting the half-century mark for his country, Ross is following in the footsteps of fellow props Cian Healy (51 caps), Peter Clohessy (54), Phil Orr (58), Marcus Horan (67) and John Hayes (105).
