A hard game is on the way when Ireland meets Wales in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, February 8 at 2.30pm. Both teams are coming of a win so both will want to capitalize on their position.
Other than the obvious, wanting to win the match both teams have something to achieve. Wales only defeat in there last eleven 6 nations’ matches was at the hands of Ireland and that was in round one. Plus to keep them ahead of the overall win lose statistics in Lansdowne Road/Aviva Stadium they need to win. To wear the colours see Welsh Rugby Jerseys
The Ireland rugby team was able to put behind them, 4 back to back losses from the Championship with the win over Scotland in their first 6 nations match. To wear the colours see Irish Rugby Jerseys
But they will also hope to win the first two matches in the six nations, a feat they achieved last in 2009 when they won the grand slam.
Ireland will want to win as Wales have won twice in the last three visits to Dublin. As you can see both sides have other records and desires but on the day if both sides play well it should be a hard match to play and a harder one to call.
