Ireland vs Fiji Live Stream Rugby– After handing out a record-points defeat to the Springboks, Ireland and Joe Schmidt will look for another convincing win when they face Fiji at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday. While Schmidt’s side were dishing out a beating to South Africa, Fiji were falling to defeat in Rome to Italy in what was a dire performance. This won’t give much of an insight into how good Ireland are, but Schmidt will welcome the chance for fringe players to show what they can do.

The Ireland coaching group have named the match day squad, that includes one new cap, to take on Fiji. Munster’s Chris Farrell is set to win his first cap alongside Stuart McCloskey in a new look centre partnership on Saturday evening.

Kieran Marmion will partner Joey Carbery in the half-backs. Up front Rhys Ruddock reprises his summer tour role as captain to lead the side. He is joined in the backrow by Jordi Murphy, who lined out for the Barbarians last week and Jack Conan.
Ultan Dillane joins Devin Toner in the engine room of the second row while Jack McGrath returns to duty in the front row where he is joined by Rob Herring and Andrew Porter. James Tracy, who made his debut this time last year against Canada and Kieran Treadwell, who won his first cap on the summer tour are included in the replacements.
Cian Healy, Tadhg Furlong, CJ Stander and Robbie Henshaw are inlcuded from last week’s starting fifteen with Luke McGrath and Ian Keatley completing the replacements.

Fiji head coach John McKee has made a handful of changes to his selection following last weekend’s defeat to Italy.
Dominiko Waqaniburotu comes into the back row at blindside flanker, with the remaining alterations including the return of Nemani Nadolo on the left wing and La Rochelle back Levani Botia at inside centre.
Henry Seniloli starts at scrum-half, with Jale Vatubua moving to outside centre and Timoci Nagusa switching to the right wing.
London Irish’s Asaeli Tikoirotuma comes onto the bench to join Newcastle’s Vereniki Goneva, with in-form Nikola Matawalu also returning to action amongst the replacements.
Fiji: 15 Kini Murimurivalu, 14 Timoci Nagusa, 13 Jale Vatubua, 12 Levani Botia, 11 Nemani Nadolo, 10 Ben Volavola, 9 Henry Seniloli; 1 Campese Ma’afu, 2 Talemaitoga Tuapati, 3 Manasa Saulo, 4 Api Ratuniyarawa, 5 Leone Nakarawa, 6 Dominiko Waqaniburotu, 7 Akapusi Qera, 8 Nemani Nagusa
Replacements: 16 Sunai Koto, 17 Peni Ravai, 18 Kalivati Tawake, 19 Sikeli Nabou, 20 Peceli Yato/Semi Kunatani, 21 Nikola Matawalu, 22 Asaeli Tikoirotuma, 23 Vereniki Goneva
Ireland’s inexperienced line-up makes this a much tighter fixture than would have been the case had the likes of Conor Murray and Jonathan Sexton been included.
Fiji have dynamite ball-carriers across the park but particularly so in star trio Nemani Nadolo, Levani Botia and Leone Nakarawa, whose offloading game will test Ireland’s defence. Ireland should still be good enough however to see this one out.
Predicted score: Ireland 29-21 Fiji
