IRELAND are taking on Scotland as they look to swipe the Six Nations title from under the noses of France on St Patrick’s Day weekend.

But they’ll need to avoid any complacency against the Scots, particularly after events in Cardiff earlier today.

Wales were stunned by perennial whipping boys Italy as they sunk to a last gasp 22-21 defeat.

    Having not won the Six Nations title for over a decade, playing in front of their own fans, they will be expecting silverware today.
