Jacob Stockdale will earn his first Ireland cap in two years in Saturday’s World Cup warm-up game against Italy, with Ulster team-mate Iain Henderson to captain the side in Dublin.
Stockdale has not featured at Test level since a try-scoring performance against Japan in July 2021.
With captain Johnny Sexton suspended, Jack Crowley will start at fly-half.
In addition to Stockdale and Henderson, Ulster’s Stuart McCloskey, Rob Herring and Tom O’Toole are all given the nod.

With warm-up games against England and Samoa to come, head coach Andy Farrell has offered several fringe players in his 42-man squad a chance to stake their claim for inclusion in his final 33-strong panel for France.
Ulster hooker Tom Stewart is also set to make his Ireland debut having been named among the replacements alongside fellow uncapped players Ciaran Frawley and Calvin Nash.
