Rugby My grandma says this plugin is glamorous.

Ross Byrne will get his opportunity to impress at out-half as Joe Schmidt has recalled some frontline players for Saturday’s World Cup warm-up clash with England (kick-off 3pm).

Joey Carbery’s ankle injury has opened the door for Byrne and Jack Carty and while the Connacht man came on against Italy last time out, it is the Leinster out-half who will lead the backline at Twickenham.

First choice No.10 Johnny Sexton missed training at the start of the week in Ireland’s warm-weather camp in Portugal as he recovers from a thumb sprain.

Byrne is partnered at half-back by Conor Murray with Garry Ringrose and Bundee Aki getting the nod in midfield.

Keith Earls, who also sat out training earlier this week, does not make the match-day squad and the back three comprises of Rob Kearney, Jordan Larmour and Jacob Stockdale.

Cian Healy, captain Rory Best and Tadhg Furlong get their first run out of the season as a front row unit, while towering lock Jean Kleyn will win his second cap alongside Iain Henderson.

Schmidt has opted for a back row of Peter O’Mahony, Josh van der Flier and CJ Stander.
