How to watch Ireland vs Scotland: TV channel and live stream for Six Nations rugby today

Ireland host Scotland on Six Nations Super Saturday, hoping to retain their title with minimal fuss.

Andy Farrell’s side will be itching to bounce back from a shock defeat by England at Twickenham last weekend that curtailed their hopes of becoming the first nation in the Six Nations era to win consecutive Grand Slams.


Ireland would also have secured the title with a game to spare with victory in London, but instead will now look to get the job done and take any potential drama out of the final day.

The Men in Green will lift the trophy once again with a win or draw against Scotland, while they would also be confirmed as champions before England travel to France in the evening kick-off by losing if they picked up two bonus points in the process.

Scotland have not won in Dublin since 2010 and head to fortress Aviva Stadium on the back of a surprise loss in Italy which halted their momentum following a fourth successive Calcutta Cup victory over old rivals England.

A first win over Ireland since 2017 could really set the cat amongst the pigeons in certain circumstances, though the odds are stacked against them.
