The 6 Nations kicks off today as Scotland host Ireland, here's how to follow the action online
The 6 Nations kicks off today as Scotland host Ireland.
The home side will be looking to carry on their fine form in the Autumn Internationals, where they beat Argentina and Japan, and came within a whisker of toppling Australia.
Ireland triumphed 35-25 in last year’s meeting between the two teams, and Scotland will be keen to live up to their tag of potential dark horses for the tournament, meaning today’s match could be a cracker.
The hosts bring in Josh Strauss, Fraser Brown and Huw Jones from the team that thrashed Georgia in their last game, whilst Ireland bring in Sean O’Brien and Iain Henderson at flanker and second row respectively.
There are a number of ways to follow the game this afternoon, so if you’re away from a television and want to keep track of the score, here is Express.co.uk’s guide to make sure you don’t miss a minute.
