Ireland vs Italy
Stadium: Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland
Date: Saturday, February 10
Time: 2.15pm GMT
After their narrow win in their Six Nations opener against France, Ireland will be keen to deliver a dominant performance against Italy on Saturday.
Ireland used their get-out-of-jail card, courtesy of Johnny Sexton’s late drop goal, which keeps their title hopes alive and the Azzurri can expect a backlash from Joe Schmidt’s charges in this match.
Of their 18 matches against Italy in the Six Nations, Ireland have won 17 – their only loss was in 2013 – and with this match being played in Dublin, anything less than a convincing win will be a disappointing result.
Despite claiming that narrow 15-13 win in Paris, Schmidt will be disappointed with his side’s attacking play in that fixture as France outscored them one try to none.
The men from the Emerald Isle will have to show considerable improvement in that department against the tournament’s weakest team if they want to make teams like England and Wales wary of them.
Ireland will draw inspiration from their previous fixture with Italy which they won 63-10 in Rome last year. That match has special memories for Ireland back-row CJ Stander as he became the first forward to score a hat-trick in a Six Nations match.
That result was also a record Six Nations triumph for Ireland and the biggest margin of victory registered by an away side in the tournament’s history.
Although Italy are favourites to finish last in the tournament again, they had some good moments during their 46-15 defeat to England in Rome last weekend and the two tries they scored in that clash were a fitting reward for entertaining passages of play.
Under the guidance of their head coach, Conor O’Shea, Italy employ a ball in hand approach which provided England with some headaches with the first of their tries coming after they had taken their opponents’ defence across the length and breadth of the field.
But despite those flashes of brilliance, Italy’s defensive efforts left a lot to be desired – they conceded seven tries – which means they head into this clash as overwhelming underdogs.
The loss to England means Italy have now lost their 13th consecutive Six Nations match and they have lost 12 of their last 13 Tests in all internationals with their only win registered win over Fiji in Catania last November.

England vs Wales
Stadium: Twickenham Stadium, London, England
Date: Saturday, February 10
Time: 16:45pm GMT
Far too early to dub this a Six Nations decider but defeat for either England or Wales would see their silverware hopes take a major dent.
Two of the three unbeaten sides after Round One face off and, with Ireland hosting Italy looking for five points, England and Wales know a loss would leave them playing catch-up in a fascinating championship. The bookmakers expect that team to be Wales, who are 4/1 underdogs.
On last week’s performance those odds appear a good bet as both defensively and in possession Warren Gatland’s side were outstanding. The Scots could not penetrate the red wall and, despite plenty of experience missing, Wales looked deadly and deservedly ran out 34-7 winners.
England, meanwhile, were equally slick in Rome as they brushed aside Italy, racking up seven tries thanks to a confident attacking display. Those two performances will have stood these sides in good stead heading to Twickenham, which is fantastic news for the watching neutral.
We have also had the customary first mind-games of this year’s Six Nations as Eddie Jones looked to rattle Wales playmaker Rhys Patchell, which offers another subplot to keep an eye on. While Patchell showed his maturity and class last week, this Saturday is another step up.
“Every time Rhys Patchell looks up he’s going to see Jonathan Joseph in his vision – it is not a great sight,” said Jones. “Wales have to get the ball wide and Patchell hasn’t played much Test match rugby. He is a young guy, he is inexperienced and is their third-choice 10.”
The England head coach added: “It will be different to playing against Scotland. Scotland could not cope with the expectation and now he has got to cope with the expectation of playing well. Patchell will have to find guys around him to help as he will be under some heat.”
Shots fired from Jones then and how Patchell and Wales respond to those words should be interesting, with their Scarlets-filled backline showing no signs of being put off their game for the last 18 months. It’s bubbling nicely ahead of Saturday’s afternoon’s showdown.
