Ruled out: Paul O'Connell

Paul O'Connell is to miss Ireland's Six Nations opener on Sunday at the Aviva Stadium due to a chest infection flaring up pre-match.

O'Connell is replaced in the Joe Schmidt's starting line-up by Ulster second-row Dan Tuohy, with Iain Henderson coming on to the bench.

Jamie Heaslip takes over the captaincy.
