The two teams yet to record a win in this year’s Six Nations championship will face off at Virgin Media Park in Cork on Saturday.


Ireland are the ones carrying momentum into this match. Despite losing to Italy in round two, they made a late surge to cut a 15-point deficit into six and pick up a losing bonus point.

If they can continue that against Wales, then they’ll be a dangerous outfit this weekend.

But there’s something to be said for the emotional factor Wales may enter the fray with. After the pain of losing in Cardiff to Scotland was followed up by a huge loss to England, Ioan Cunningham’s side are going to be completely charged and desperate for their first win of the tournament.

The Welsh hammered Ireland in 2023, and even beat them on Irish soil in 2022, but have now lost five games in a row in all competitions - and may be ripe for the taking, if head coach Scott Bemand can smooth out the negatives in Ireland’s performances so far.

Ireland v Wales prediction

It should be a tight game. But one with plenty to play for - and hopefully plenty of tension.

If Ireland can keep Wales’ powerful frontline carriers from getting near their try line, then they’ll do well, as well as not allowing Wales to control the territorial battle.

With home advantage, the favour leans to Ireland - just.

Prediction: Ireland win
