WATCH – Munster hooker Niall Scannell on being named to start for second test with Australia.

Niall Scannell is aiming to make the most of the opportunity having been selected as Ireland’s starting hooker for the second Test against Australia in Melbourne on Saturday.

The hooker made his mark in 2017 and scored a try on the summer tour, Scannell missed out on the Autumn Internationals and the Six Nations this season, but injury to Rory Best has handed him a fine chance to prove his worth.

“It’s a great opportunity. Really looking forward to Saturday and to putting my best foot forward to do anything I can for the team.”
