BATH prop Paul James will drop to the bench for Wales' second RBS 6 Nations Championship clash against Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.
James, who won his 35th cap when starting the 23-15 win over Italy in Cardiff last weekend, makes way as Wales coach Warren Gatland recalls 101 times-capped Gethin Jenkins.
Captain Sam Warburton will return to the Wales starting line-up for the Aviva Stadium encounter.
Warburton, who began his comeback from a shoulder injury off the bench when Wales beat Italy three days ago, replaces openside flanker Justin Tipuric, while Andrew Coombs takes over from lock Luke Charteris, who has a hamstring injury.
