Ireland made hard work of defeating the English last week as they struggled for over an hour against 14 men before two late tries secured a professional 32-15 win. But they will have their work cut out against the Irish, who they have an atrocious record against.

Stuart Hogg and Scotland will be looking to improve their record against the Irish[/caption] Scotland have two wins and two defeats so far but have not hit the heights that may have been expected after their opening day win over England. Ryan Baird would have been the man most likely to replace James Ryan, but he’s out with a back injury. The Scots have lost all of their last six, and ten of their last eleven, matches against Ireland. The Irish will be looking for victory over the Scots and will then have to hope from a favour from England, who play in Paris in the late kick-off.
