Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has delivered good news in relation to both his hookers carrying knocks.
Dan Sheehan only suffered a sprain to his foot and Farrell revealed this afternoon that he 'expects him to be fit' for the World Cup.
Ronan Kelleher is back running in training but his hamstring won't be risked against Samoa in Bayonne on Saturday.
It's the final World Cup warm-up match but Farrell would play him if it was a more important game.
Iain Henderson returns to the second row to captain Ireland on Saturday night, having done so against Italy in Dublin at the start of the month.
Jimmy O'Brien, Mack Hansen and Keith Earls, fresh from winning his 100th Test cap last weekend, start in the back three.
Robbie Henshaw and Stuart McCloskey are in midfield while there's an all Munster half-back pairing as Jack Crowley and Conor Murray start.
In the pack, Cian Healy and Finlay Bealham are selected either side of Tom Stewart, who is set for his first Ireland start.
Henderson partners Tadhg Beirne in the engine room, with Ryan Baird, Josh van der Flier and Caelan Doris completing the starting fifteen.
