The Irish side to take on New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup Quarter Final this Saturday has been named
Rob Kearney, Peter O'Mahony and Garry Ringrose will return for Ireland's Rugby World Cup quarter-final against New Zealand in Tokyo on Saturday.
Kearney missed the Samoa game due to a groin injury, but coach Joe Schmidt has gone for the tried and trusted, picking the experienced Leinster full-back ahead of the in-form Jordan Larmour.
O'Mahony has got the nod in the back row ahead of Tadhg Beirne, with Ringrose returning at outside centre.
Robbie Henshaw moves to inside centre, as Bundee Aki's tournament is now over due to suspension.

15. Rob Kearney
14. Keith Earls
