Kearney named at fullback as Ireland make five changes for Scotland

Ireland full-back Rob Kearney will start in Saturday's Six Nations international against ScotlandMore

The Belvedere man says he understands global rugby is very different from the club game but thinks Schmidt's Ireland side need more variations in the opposing 22'.

"We have to build our way into the game".

"I suppose they were said to spark a reaction in us, because no one likes the thought of that word being said about them", Conan said yesterday.

Robbie Henshaw has become the latest player to join an ever mounting Ireland injury list.

Henshaw did not convince at full back against England and Rob Kearney had already been slated in for an immediate return at 15.

"Robbie Henshaw has a dead leg and just hasn't recovered in time", said Schmidt.

Elsewhere, Munster's Chris Farrell will start at 13 - replacing Garry Ringrose who picked up a hamstring injury.

But if you get another bump on it, it debilitates you quickly and then you have to make another change. It's a great opportunity to get him in.

"We're just going to have to forge ahead, but it's an exciting opportunity to give Chris Farrell a run against Scotland".

Maitland - who has four Heineken Champions Cup tries from five appearances this season - will form a familiar back three with Glasgow Warriors wing Tommy Seymour and full-back Stuart Hogg, with the trio combining for the 18th time for Scotland.
