Schmidt explains three Ireland changes

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt is forced to omit Lions scrum-half Conor Murray for Saturday's game against Grand Slam-chasing England as he also drafts in Ulster pair Jared Payne and Iain Henderson.

Murray has failed to recover from the shoulder problem he sustained in the defeat by Wales while Payne replaces injured bull-back Rob Kearney with Henderson displacing Devin Toner at lock.
