2020 Guinness Six Nations Ireland v Wales
This is a crucial fixture, in round 2 of the Guinness 6 Nations Championships. Ireland will be keen to ensure Wales don’t win another Grand Slam, utilising their home advantage at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.
Ireland v Wales: Ireland rose to No.1 in the world rankings following a 19-10 victory over Wales at the Aviva Stadium. It was Ireland’s second victory over Wales in the space of a week and marked the end of both team’s World Cup warm-up campaigns in September 2019. Wales dominated the early exchanges and were 10-7 up at half time. However, in the second half the Irish pack did well in the collisions, and played deep in the Welsh half as they enjoyed the lion’s share of possession and territory. Tadhg Furlong and James Ryan forced their way over for tries and Johnny Sexton converted the first of them.
The previous week at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff Ireland bounced back from a record loss at Twickenham to beat Wales 22-17. A brace of tries from Jacob Stockdale, plus a Jack Carty penalty kick saw Ireland leading 15-3 at the break. In the second half, Ireland’s scrum was hugely dominant and led to a penalty try being awarded in the 57th minute, extending the visitor’s lead to 22-3. Wales fought back strongly with tries from Owen Lane and Rhys Patchell, but time eventually ran out for the home side.
Ireland v Wales, the two teams have played each other at rugby union since 1992. A total of 129 matches have been played. with Wales winning 69 matches, Ireland winning 53 matches and 7 matches drawn.
