Sam Warburton to start for Wales against Ireland

Wales captain Sam Warburton returns to the side for Saturday's Six Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin.

Sam Warburton has returned to the Wales starting lineup for Saturday's Six Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin.

The captain was forced to start on the bench for last weekend's opening win over Italy following a shoulder injury.

Coach Warren Gatland has made two other changes to his side as Gethin Jenkins and Andrew Coombs are both given the nod.

Meanwhile, Luke Charteris has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

Wales team to face Ireland:

Leigh Halfpenny, Alex Cuthbert, Scott Williams, Jamie Roberts, George North, Rhys Priestland, Mike Phillips, Gethin Jenkins, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones, Andrew Coombs, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton, Taulupe Faletau
Replacements: Ken Owens, Paul James, Rhodri Jones, Jake Ball, Justin Tipuric, Rhys Webb, James Hook, Liam Williams
