ITV will broadcast live Six Nations action this afternoon as the 2020 tournament continues.
The second round of fixtures get under at the Aviva Stadium as Ireland host Wales.
Both sides were victorious last weekend, with Wales easily defeating a poor Italian outfit, and Ireland somewhat fortunate to edge out Scotland on this ground.
Ireland prevailed 37-27 when the sides last met here in this competition en route to the Grand Slam in 2018.
However, the Welsh emulated that feat last year, securing the title with a 25-7 victory over today’s opponents at Principality Stadium.
Gareth Anscombe kicked 20 points on that occasion to ensure former head coach Warren Gatland ended the campaign as the only man to guide a nation to three Grand Slams.
Coverage begins at 1.25pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Mark Pougatch is joined in the studio by Brian O’Driscoll, Gareth Thomas and Jonny Wilkinson.
Pitchside reports come from Martin Bayfield, while Nick Mullins, Gordon D’Arcy and Shane Williams provide match commentary.
