Ireland v Scotland

Ireland v Scotland (Kick-off 4.45pm). Coverage from the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, where Andy Farrell takes charge of his first Six Nations match as head coach of Ireland. The sides will be perfectly familiar with each other, having met in the pool stage of the World Cup in Japan in September, when Ireland came out on top 27-3 in a relatively one-sided encounter. However, both teams were to come a cropper at the hands of the host nation, meaning elimination for Scotland and a quarter-final against New Zealand for the Irish, in which they were comprehensively outplayed. The Scots still have Gregor Townsend at the helm, with the pressure on the former fly-half to harness the undoubted talent that his squad possesses into positive results.
