Ireland's Kearney set for 6 Nations return
Rob Kearney has been recalled at full-back by an injury-hit Ireland for their Six Nations global away to Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday as the reigning champions look to return to winning ways.
The Ulster scrum half was given just three minutes to make an impression against England last weekend and did his best to make his mark by touching down a consolation try.
Henshaw was expected to return to the more familiar role of centre, allowing Rob Kearney to return to fullback but his absence hands Chris Farrell an opportunity in the midfield while Jack Conan and Quinn Roux replace the injured men in the pack.

"I'd like to see how they'd describe our Plan A to be honest", said head coach Schmidt, responding to accusations Ireland's gameplan is limited.
Henshaw's injury blow, coupled with Garry Ringrose's hamstring problem, has opened the door for Munster's battering-ram centre Farrell to win his fourth cap.

"Robbie Henshaw has a dead leg and just hasn't recovered in time", said Schmidt.
"It does make it hard; the problem is he maybe could have played". Roux failed to make the cut for Ireland's initial Six Nations squad, but has since leapfrogged provincial team-mate Ultan Dillane, who takes a seat on the bench.
"You've got Chris Farrell sitting in the wings, massively motivated to do his best". 'So it's a great opportunity to get him in and give him a run.
