Team News: Gibson-Park starts at scrumhalf for Ireland against Scotland

THERE is no place for Conor Murray or Craig Casey in the Ireland starting XV to take on Scotland this Sunday. Andy Farrell has selected an experienced side that features Munster trio Tadhg Beirne, CJ Stander and Keith Earls (KO 3pm, Virgin Media One)

There are only three changes to the side that defeated Italy in Rome a fortnight ago.

Cian Healy, Rob Herring and Keith Earls come into the team at the expense of Dave Kilcoyne, Ronan Kelleher and Jordan Larmour.

Despite a promising cameo off the bench from Limerick scrumhalf Craig Casey at Stadio Olimpico, there is no place for him in the match day 23 this time around.
