Ireland coach Declan Kidney will give debuts to Simon Zebo and Declan Fitzpatrick when they face New Zealand in the first Test on Saturday.
Fitzpatrick will replace the injured Mike Ross at tighthead prop, while Zebo will play wing with Fergus McFadden taking his place on the opposite flank. Brian O'Driscoll also makes his return after missing the Six Nations with a trapped nerve.
Kidney wants Ireland to be at their best for the World Cup winners.
"I think when you're playing the world champions in their own back yard, first game after the World Cup you need to be at the top of your game," he said.
"There are no secrets about that. But we believe that if we do that then we are in with a good shout."
Ireland face New Zealand at Eden Park at 8.35am (GMT) on Saturday.
