Rugby! Ireland v Scotland Live Stream – How to Watch Free From Anywhere, Prediction

Ireland hopes to snatch Six Nations glory when they complete their campaign at home to Scotland. This will be the second of three matches taking place on the final day of the 2022 Six Nations Championship. Victory over Scotland would move Ireland to the top of the championship standings, but their title hopes would still rely on England upsetting France in the evening kick-off in Paris. Given that Ireland has a superior points difference to France, there are also scenarios where a draw – or even a defeat with two losing bonus points – would be sufficient for Ireland. Iain Henderson, Jack Conan, and Mack Hansen have been restored to starting XV as Ireland target a happy ending in Dublin. Ireland will know that the title could be theirs if France slips up in Paris, so expect them to come flying out of the gate. This could be a classic.

Ireland vs Scotland: History and Results

Ireland and Scotland have contested a total of 138 rugby test matches since their first meeting in 1877. Ireland has won 67 of those matches, whilst Scotland has won 66 matches. There have also been five drawn matches between the two nations. But Ireland has won 10 of the last 11 matches! Scotland’s only win over Ireland was in Dublin at Croke Park back in 2010.

Who will win?

The match will be a close one with both teams wanting to finish the campaign on a high. However, Ireland does go into this match as overwhelming favorites. Their only loss so far this tournament has come against the unbeaten French, in Paris. I predict that Ireland will win the match by 10 points. What do you think?
