Ireland VS Russia World Cup 2011 (in New Zealand) 12BEt 9/25 2PM(GMT+8)

The former Munster coach has, in all, made nine personnel changes to the side that shocked Australia last weekend - as well as one positional switch – one that sees Keith Earls move from the wing to outside centre, thus accommodating the recall of Andrew Trimble.
Fergus McFadden and Paddy Wallace make their World Cup debuts on the other wing and centre positions respectively, while Ronan O’Gara deputises for Jonny Sexton at fly-half, Isaac Boss the man to play alongside him.
Leo Cullen takes the place of O’Connell at lock and will captain Ireland on his World Cup debut. The front row, meanwhile, sees a first finals start for Tony Buckley at tighthead, while Sean Cronin takes Rory Best’s place at hooker. Also, Donncha Ryan replaces Stephen Ferris at blindside flanker. -
