What is it?

It is the final World Cup warm-up for both of these teams and, with a number of star names set to return, neither will want to fly out to Japan on the back of a loss.

Keith Earls and Robbie Henshaw also return to the back division, although Jacob Stockdale has been left out of the match day squad following his brace in Ireland’s win over a B string Wales the Principality Stadium last weekend.
