2020 Guinness Six Nations Ireland v Scotland

Ireland welcome Scotland to the Aviva Stadium in their opening fixture of the 6 Nations Championships. In 2019, there wasn’t much to separate the two sides, so both teams will have much to prove after the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Product Description

Ireland v Scotland 2020 takes place at the cauldron that is the Aviva Stadium, on the outskirts of Dublin on the site of the former Lansdowne Road Stadium which was demolished in 2007. Home to the Ireland national rugby union team and the Republic of Ireland national football team, the stadium also hosts some home games for Leinster when there’s demand for a larger stadium.

The 2013 Heineken Cup final also took place in the Stadium with Toulon beating Clermont Auvergne.

The most recent time Ireland v Scotland took place was in the group stages of the Rugby World Cup in Japan, with Ireland winning 27-3. Ireland eventually lost in the Quarter Finals to the rampant All Blacks, and Scotland didn’t make it out of the group stages after also losing to Japan. Joe Schmidt, is the New Zealand-born Irish coach who in the 6 years of being the Head Coach of Ireland has won 3 Six Nations Championships and recorded their first ever win over his home nation of New Zealand, but alas not in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Schmidt has dual citizenship, having become an Irish citizen in 2015.

Prior to that, Ireland v Scotland was last played at Murrayfield with a closely contested match resulting in a 22-13 away win to the men in green. Always a feisty encounter, both sides have passionate support who follow them home and away.

The winner of the Ireland v Scotland match will be presented with the Centenary Quaich, which was first awarded in 1989 and was most recently won by Ireland during the 2019 Championship.  Since their first meeting in 1877, Ireland and Scotland have contested a total of 136 rugby test matches. Scotland have won 67 of those matches, whilst Ireland have won 64 matches, and there have been 5 drawn matches between the two nations.
