Marmion Payne and Henderson start in Irelands 6 Nations finale against England

first_img 111 Comments iTunes IRELAND HEAD COACH Joe Schmidt has made three changes in the starting line-up as he hopes to finish the Six Nations on an upward curve at home to England.Devin Toner, Conor Murray and Rob Kearney all drop out of the starting XV – the latter two out of the matchday squad through injury – to be replaced by Iain Henderson, Kieran Marmion and Jared Payne.Murray sustained a shoulder ‘stinger’ during the loss to Wales last weekend and was replaced by Connacht scrum-half Marmion. The knock-on effect of Murray’s injury brings Leinster’s Luke McGrath in among the replacements.
