The Countdown Is On To Kick-Off At The Aviva


Ireland bid to keep their Grand Slam dream alive this afternoon when they host Scotland at the Aviva Stadium.

Joe Schmidt makes 2 changes to the side which conquered Wales 2 weeks ago, as Garry Ringrose and Tadhg Furlong coming into the starting 15.

The Scots come into the encounter high on confidence having just ended a decade long wait for a win over England in the competition.

Kick off is at 2:15.

Gardai are urging anyone heading to the game today to use public transport where possible

All eyes then turn to the Stade de France where defending champions England face off against France.

Last night the Ireland Under 20’s secured victory over their Scottish counterparts in Donnybrook.

It finished Ireland 30 Scotland 25.

The women’s side will face the Scots on Sunday afternoon following on from their emphatic win over Wales two weeks ago.
