Robbie Henshaw starts as Ireland team is named to face Samoa


Head coach Joe Schmidt has named 12 of the Ireland team that started the win over Scotland for Saturday's final Pool A match against Samoa in Fukuoka.

There is no danger to the holding of the fixture, as it's not in the path of Typhoon Hagibis which has resulted in the cancellation of the England v France and New Zealand v Italy games.

Robbie Henshaw will start his first game of the tournament at centre having recovered from a hamstring problem.

In all Schmidt makes 11 changes to the Ireland team that beat Russia.

Tadhg Beirne is given a start on the blindside in the back row, with Peter O'Mahony on the bench.

Joey Carbery is one of the backup players, but Rob Kearney and Garry Ringrose are rested entirely.

The Ireland team to play Samoa at 11.45am Irish time on Saturday is:

15. Jordan Larmour

14. Keith Earls

13. Robbie Henshaw

12. Bundee Aki

11. Jacob Stockdale
