Six Nations

Italy v Ireland

BBC coverage of the Six Nations championship continues with live action from Stadio Flaminio, where Italy take on Ireland.

Eddie O'Sullivan's side will be expecting an easy win on Italian soil, but John Kirwan's Azzuri may have a few tricks up their sleeves.

Italy won only one game in their first three seasons in the Six Nations and are hoping 2003 will be the time when they develop into a really competitive side.

Last season's game between these two countries was won 32-17 by Ireland at Lansdowne Road, which at least offers some hope for Kirwan.


Wales v England

England travel to play Wales at the Millennium Stadium in the second part of this weekend's RBS Six Nations triple-bill of live action.

The Welsh are out to avenge their record 50-10 thumping at Twickenham last season, and will have to keep a close eye on England's Jonny Wilkinson, who scored 30 of those points.

But Welsh victories over Romania, Fiji, and Canada in 2002 should have given the Welsh enough confidence to give Clive Woodward's England far more of a game than last season.
