Wales vs Ireland
Six Nations 2019
Venue: Principality Stadium, Cardiff
Kick-off: 2:45pm GMT, Saturday, March 16
A Wales v Ireland Six Nations Grand Slam decider in Cardiff. We’ve been here before!
In 2005 Wales welcomed Ireland to their national stadium when on the brink of securing a first championship clean sweep since 1978 – and they duly delivered. Gethin Jenkins and Kevin Morgan scored the tries that helped Mike Ruddock’s side to a 32-20 victory.
In 2009 it was Ireland chasing history, looking for a first Grand Slam in 61 years – and they duly delivered too. It was a far tighter affair on that occasion, Ireland winning 17-15 thanks to a late Ronan O’Gara drop-goal.
So what of 2019? Wales are the only team in the championship who can win a Grand Slam, but England and Ireland are still in the hunt for the trophy too.
