TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Ireland captain Rory Best will win his 120th cap on his last appearance in a World Cup warm-up match in Dublin on Saturday.

The game also marks the final match for Joe Schmidt on Irish soil.

Best, who will retire after the World Cup, leads a much-changed Ireland team against Wales in the final match before the global showpiece.

Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong join the Ireland captain in the front row, with James Ryan and Jean Kleyn packing down in the second row.

Jack Conan starts at No.8, with Christiaan Stander coming into the back row at No.6 and Josh van der Flier named at No.7.
