Six Nations 2019: Ireland will be a 'different animal' against Scotland - Pountney

Rob Kearney has been recalled at full-back by an injury-hit Ireland for their Six Nations global away to Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday as the reigning champions look to return to winning ways.

The double grand-slam victor was omitted from last weekend's 32-20 defeat by England, although his replacement Robbie Henshaw struggled positionally at Dublin's Aviva Stadium.

Keith Earls injured his hip in the 32-20 beating at the hands of Eddie Jones' England team, but the wing has been declared fit.

Injuries to Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose, who picked up a knock in training, have led to a start for Chris Farrell at outside centre, with Rob Kearney returning at full-back after a thigh injury.

Schmidt last week bemoaned his side's habit of starting slowly having failed to win their opening Six Nations game for the third time in four years, and said on Thursday that the bruising defeat had stung for much of the week.

Toner's ankle injury has exacerbated the absences at lock of Iain Henderson with a finger problem and Tadhg Beirne with knee trouble.

'It does make it hard; the problem is he maybe could have played, but if you get another bump on it, it debilitates you quickly, and then you have to make another change'.

"Once Garry Ringrose was ruled out, it was going to be trying to keep a little continuity as best we can and get as cohesive as we can in a short space of time. It probably took us until today to really get a spring back in our step and really get hungry because we can't pass up a second opportunity". This was, after all, Cooney's first taste of Six Nations rugby, and he was only on the... "He's coming back to form after a long lay-off", Schmidt added.
