Declan Kidney has selected 10 Leinster players in his Ireland team to face New Zealand in Christchurch on Saturday.
Kevin McLaughlin has been brought in at blindside flanker to replicate the back row that started in the province's Heineken Cup final win over Ulster in May.
Props Mike Ross and Cian Healy have passed fitness tests and join Rory Best in the front row, while Fergus McFadden, scorer of Ireland's solitary try last week, retains his spot on the right wing.
Simon Zebo, who looked lively in the first Test, drops to the bench as Ulster winger Andrew Trimble returns to the side.
Captain Brian O'Driscoll resumes his midfield partnership with Gordon D'Arcy, who comes in for the injured Keith Earls.
Rob Kearney starts at full-back while Kidney has resisted the temptation to pair Leinster half-backs Jonathan Sexton, who starts, and Eoin Reddan. Conor Murray retains the number nine jersey.
Dan Tuohy and Donnacha Ryan resume their second-row partnership, with Kidney emphasising the Ulster man's proficiency at the line-out as the primary reason why Donncha O'Callaghan remains on the replacement's bench.
Ireland team: Rob Kearney; Fergus McFadden, Brian O'Driscoll (captain), Gordon D'Arcy, Andrew Trimble; Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rory Best, Mike Ross, Dan Tuohy, Donnacha Ryan, Kevin McLaughlin, Sean O'Brien, Jamie Heaslip.
