愛爾蘭對陣南非。羅伯特-巴魯庫恩回歸,康納-穆雷將戴上第100頂帽子

最後更新於.從愛爾蘭橄欖球部分

愛爾蘭的Robert Baloucoune將於周六在都柏林對陣世界冠軍南非隊時贏得他的第三頂帽子。

傳球手康納-穆雷(Conor Murray)將在國際賽場上第100次出場,而賈米森-吉布森-帕克(Jamison Gibson-Park)的身體狀況只夠在板凳上坐一坐。

在後排,彼得-奧馬哈尼比傑克-科南更受歡迎。

  • 沒有斯托克代爾和休姆在愛爾蘭 "A "級陣容中,將面對全黑隊十五人。

阿爾斯特中鋒斯圖爾特-麥克洛斯基(Stuart McCloskey)將因本賽季的良好開局而獲得獎勵,他將在一年多的時間裡首次出現在國際比賽中,並被列入替補名單。

McCloskey的俱樂部隊友Baloucoune在參加了上個月的新興愛爾蘭南非之行後回到了高級首發陣容中。

"我是一個很有耐心的人。當我受傷時,這很令人失望,但我知道我會回來的,我的主要觀點只是嘗試回來並變得更強大,"Baloucoune說。

"我遇到過不少挫折,但我從來沒有真正的沮喪過。我只是一直在努力爭取那個階段,只是想儘快恢復健康。"

Baloucoune與Hugo Keenan和Mack Hansen共同組成後三組,他們是12名在愛爾蘭最近一次測試中保留位置的球員之一--7月對新西蘭的系列賽勝利。

萊恩斯特的吉布森-帕克自那場比賽後就沒有上場,這意味着默里將成為愛爾蘭的第八位百夫長,這將是他一年來的第一次國際比賽。

這位明斯特的中堅力量在11年前對法國的世界盃熱身賽中完成了他的國際首秀。

在惠靈頓的那場歷史性勝利中,愛爾蘭隊的陣容保持不變,奧馬哈尼再次與喬什-范德弗里爾和凱蘭-多里斯組成後排,他們在與全黑隊的比賽中表現出色。

由於羅南-凱萊赫受傷,安德魯-波特、丹-希恩和塔格-弗隆的全林斯特三人組被賦予了與許多人認為是世界上最好的前排對陣的任務。

斯普林伯克隊自2017年以來第一次前往都柏林,當時他們在一場一邊倒的比賽中以38-3的比分大獲全勝。

然而,目前的南非隊是一個完全不同的命題,他們將希望對世界排名第一的球隊取得一場聲明性的勝利。

周六的比賽具有額外的複雜性,因為這是自南非的精英俱樂部球隊加入愛爾蘭省的聯合橄欖球錦標賽以來雙方的第一次會面。

Ireland's Robert Baloucoune will win his third cap against world champions South Africa in Dublin on Saturday.

Scrum-half Conor Murray will make his 100th international appearance with Jamison Gibson-Park only fit enough for a place on the bench.

Peter O'Mahony is preferred to Jack Conan in the back row. • None Stockdale and Hume in Ireland 'A' side to face All Blacks XV

Ulster centre Stuart McCloskey is set to be rewarded for a fine start to the season with his first international appearance in over a year having been named among the replacements.

McCloskey's club-mate Baloucoune returns to the senior starting XV following his involvement in last month's Emerging Ireland tour of South Africa.

"I'm a pretty patient guy. When I got injuries it was disappointing but I knew I would be back, and my main point was just to try to get back and be stronger," Baloucoune said.

"I've had quite a few setbacks but I've never really been down about it. I've just been trying to get that stage and just trying to get back to being fit and healthy as soon as possible."

Baloucoune is joined in the back three by Hugo Keenan and Mack Hansen, who are among the 12 players to retain their place from Ireland's most recent Test - July's series-clinching win over New Zealand.

Leinster's Gibson-Park has not played since that game meaning Murray is set to become Ireland's eighth Test centurion in what will be his first international start in a year.

The Munster stalwart made his international debut in a World Cup warm-up match against France 11 years ago.

The pack remains unchanged from that historic victory in Wellington, with O'Mahony once again joining Josh van der Flier and Caelan Doris in the back row having enjoyed a magnificent series against the All Blacks.

With Ronan Kelleher injured, the all-Leinster trio of Andrew Porter, Dan Sheehan and Tadhg Furlong are tasked with fronting up to what many believe to be the world's best front row.

The Springboks travel to Dublin for the first time since 2017, when they were emphatically beaten 38-3 in a one-sided contest.

However, the current South Africa side are an entirely different proposition, and will hope to deliver a statement win over the world's number one ranked team.

Saturday's contest holds an additional layer of intrigue due to the fact that it is the first meeting between the sides since South Africa's elite club sides joined the Irish provinces in the United Rugby Championship. • None 'Ireland only world's best if we win World Cup'
