Johnny Sexton is back in the Ireland team for Saturday’s second test against Australia in Melbourne.
The Leinster out half returns as one of eight changes to the side that lost to the Wallabies in Brisbane.
Munster’s Andrew Conway and Niall Scannell are surprise inclusions on the wing and at hooker.
Keith Earls is retained on the other wing, despite suffering a head injury last weekend.
Garry Ringrose, Tadhg Furlong, Cian Healy and Dan Leavy are also recalled, while Tadhg Beirne could make his debut from the bench.
Australia will line out with the same squad that won last week.
Coach Michael Cheika has named an unchanged 23 for the first time since taking charge of the Wallabies in 2014.
Ireland must win to keep the three test series alive ahead of the final game in Sydney.
