Ireland hand first starts to Tracy and Treadwell
Leinster hooker Tracy and Ulster lock Treadwell are two of six changes made by coach Joe Schmidt from last week’s 50-22 victory over the hosts.
Devin Toner is primed to make his 50th international appearance in Tokyo, while Cian Healy will clock up his 70th.
John Cooney could make his debut after the scrum-half was named among the replacements.
A quartet of players – Andrew Conway, Rory Scannell, Luke McGrath and Dan Leavy – earned their first starts in the opening contest.
