This weekend’s 6 Nations rugby kicks off today as Ireland take on Scotland in Dublin.

Both sides will be looking to continue from excellent performances last time out as the fight for the title hots up. 

The hosts, who are unbeaten so far and looking to complete a grand slam, welcome back Garry Ringrose and Tadhg Furlong as they look to preserve that excellent run in front of a packed home crowd.


However Scotland, who resoundingly beat England in the Calcutta Cup in their last game, will be keen to push on and stake their claim for the title. Gregor Townsend makes only one change to that side, with Blair Kinghorn making his international debut on the wing in place of the injured Tommy Seymour.
