Ireland coach Declan Kidney announced an unchanged side on Friday to play England in Sunday's Six Nations international in Dublin.

Flank Peter O'Mahony, who suffered a head knock, and backs Gordon D'Arcy (dead leg) and Keith Earls (shoulder) were all passed fit after suffering injuries during Ireland's tournament-opening 30-22 win over Grand Slam champions Wales in Cardiff last weekend.

Sunday's match is already being billed as a potential title decider after England defeated Scotland 38-18 at Twickenham in the first round.

Earlier on Friday, England coach Stuart Lancaster made one change to his starting line-up, with James Haskell coming into a revamped back row after No.8 Ben Morgan was ruled out with an ankle injury.

Ireland: 15 Rob Kearney, 14 Craig Gilroy, 13 Brian O'Driscoll, 12 Gordon D'Arcy, 11 Simon Zebo, 10 Jonathan Sexton, 9 Conor Murray, 8 Jamie Heaslip (captain), 7 Sean O'Brien, 6 Peter O'Mahony, 5 Donnacha Ryan, 4 Mike McCarthy, 3 Mike Ross, 2 Rory Best, 1 Cian Healy.
Replacements: 16 Sean Cronin, 17 David Kilcoyne, 18 Declan Fitzpatrick, 19 Donncha O'Callaghan, 20 Chris Henry, 21 Eoin Reddan, 22 Ronan O'Gara, 23 Keith Earls.

Date: Sunday, February 10
Venue: Aviva Stadium, Dublin
Referee: Jérôme Garces (France)
Assistant referees: Nigel Owens (Wales), Pascal Gauzere (France)
