Rugby-Heaslip back for Ireland against Wales

DUBLIN, March 12 (Reuters) - Ireland have made only one change for their Six Nations clash with Wales in Cardiff on Saturday with number eight Jamie Heaslip returning from injury.

Paul O‘Connell, who will captain the side, will win his 100th Test cap for Ireland.
