Ireland will look to take another step towards a Six Nations grand slam as they host Wales in Dublin.

Andy Farrell’s side have been in fine form so far as they bid to repeat their clean sweep from 2023, shutting down France in Marseille and easing to victory against Italy.

They will be big favourites as a winless Wales come to town, Warren Gatland’s side encouraging in parts but knowing that they face a significant step-up.

Can Gatland’s side produce a shock to open up the championship? Here’s everything you need to know. Get the latest Ireland vs Wales odds and tips here.

Team news

Ciaran Frawley is given the starting 15 shirt by Andy Farrell in the absence of the injured Hugo Keenan, but Caelan Doris is fit and starts in the back row. There are six forwards on the Ireland bench, including a potential debutant in Oli Jager, who impressed with the Crusaders in New Zealand before a midseason move to Munster, with only Conor Murray and Stuart McCloskey as back replacements.

Sam Costelow returns at fly half for Wales after missing the defeat to England, stepping in for Ioan Lloyd, who drops to the bench. That is the sole change to the starting line-up made by Warren Gatland, with the rest of the 15 intact after a strong first hour at Twickenham.

On the bench, there is a potential debutant in back rower Mackenzie Martin, and Dillon Lewis is primed for his first appearance of the championship after injury to Archie Griffin.
