Ireland name an unchanged side to face Wales, but hooker Rory Best is still a doubt with a choulder problem.

Ireland have picked the same team that beat Italy 36-6 ahead of their quarter-final clash with Wales on Saturday.

Hooker Rory Best is provisionally named in the starting lineup despite receiving treatment for a shoulder problem, with a final decision on his fitness to be made later this week.

Ronan O'Gara keeps his place at fly-half ahead of Jonathan Sexton, while lock Donncha O'Callaghan will win his 80th Test cap.

Ireland: Robert Kearney, Tommy Bowe, Brian O'Driscoll (c), Gordon D'Arcy, Keith Earls, Ronan O'Gara, Conor Murray, Jamie Heaslip, Sean O'Brien, Stephen Ferris, Paul O'Connell, Donncha O'Callaghan, Mike Ross, Rory Best or Sean Cronin, Cian Healy.

Replacements: Sean Cronin or Damien Varley, Tom Court, Donnacha Ryan, Denis Leamy, Eoin Reddan, Jonathan Sexton, Andrew Trimble.
