The Breakdown S02E11 with Sporting Limerick & Three Red Kings.

There is only one show in town this weekend as Scotland visit the Aviva Stadium looking to cause an upset while Ireland are looking to take another tentative step towards a grand slam.

We look ahead to all three games but first up is Ireland’s clash with Gregor Townsend’s side who are looking to make it two wins on the bounce over Joe Schmidt’s side. If last year’s is anything to go by, Ireland can’t afford a slow start in this eagerly anticipated affair.

Should Ireland collect five points against the Scots, we could be in a position to seal the championship come Saturday evening if England do not match our result when taking on the French in Paris. While French players will need no encouragement to take on their old foes, it remains to be seen if they can string together a complete 80 minutes which looks a tall order against a well drilled English side.

The Sunday fixtures is Wales v Italy in what should be a bonus point win for the home side. Wales will be smarting from narrow losses to Ireland and England while Conor O’Shea’s side have shown glimpses of promise, it is hard to see them emerge from Cardiff with anything.
