Connacht prop Finlay Bealham is in line for his Ireland debut after Cian Healy was ruled out of Saturday's RBS 6 Nations clash with Italy through injury.

The uncapped Bealham steps onto the bench in place of Leinster front-rower Healy, and will most likely join the Aviva Stadium fray in the second half.

Ireland will chase their first win of the tournament in Dublin on Saturday at the fourth time of asking.
