This will be Cronin’s 68th cap for Ireland, but his first Six Nations start in his 32nd Six Nations game.

It’s an all-Connacht second row as Dillane lines up next to Quinn Roux, while Murphy will be in between London Irish-bound Sean O’Brien and captain Peter O’Mahony.

Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray have been named for the 50th time as Ireland’s half-back combination.
