Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan has delayed naming his two locks for Saturday's Six Nations game against Scotland until the last possible moment. The second row pairing and replacement will be confirmed on Thursday afternoon following a fitness test on Paul O'Connell.

They will be selected from O'Connell, Malcolm O'Kelly, Donncha O'Callaghan and Mick O'Driscoll.

O'Sullivan has made no other changes to the side that beat Wales 31-5 in Lansdowne Road last month.
