Joe Schmidt has named a strong side to take on Wales in the Aviva Stadium at the weekend, in what will be Paul O'Connell's final home game in an Irish shirt.

As we've seen with the two previous World Cup warm-up tests so far, Schmidt has opted to give a run out to a number of players hoping to stake their claim to a place in the final squad.

Luke Fitzgerald has been given a chance at outside centre, while Dave Kearney gets a start on the wing. Keith Earls will line-up on the opposite flank, having performed so well against Wales in Cardiff at 13. 

In the forwards, Richardt Strauss gets his opportunity at Hooker, with Nathan White and Jack McGrath filling in the rest of the front three.

Plenty of Big names return to the side, with Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray both starting their first game in an Irish shirt since the Six Nations, while Robbie Henshaw, Jamie Heaslip, Rob Kearney and Paul O'Connell all return to the starting line-up following their exclusions from the stat 15 against Scotland.

While the game isn't be televised on RTE live, you can catch the highlights at 8.00pm Saturday night, or watch the game on Sky Sports 1, with coverage starting at 2.15pm and the game kicking-off at 2.30pm.

Once again the IRFU has insisted on announcing the side via their Twitter handles, so just in case you're not on a Twitter-name basis with the entire squad, we've put their real names below.
