Everything you need to know about the television coverage of Scotland’s final Six Nations fixture, against Ireland.

Scotland close out their Six Nations campaign this weekend as they look to end on a high.

A third-place finish is the best Gregor Townsend’s men can hope for having failed to kick on from their opening day win over England.
