Rugby’s Greatest Championship continues this weekend as the 2023 Six Nations enters round two where Ireland welcome France to Dublin and Italy head to Twickenham to face Steve Borthwick’s England.
Either side of those two compelling clashes is Scotland vs Wales, a match between two sides who had differing fortunes in their round one fixtures. Gregor Townsend’s team retained the Calcutta Cup with a superb 29-23 win in London while Warren Gatland’s return to Cardiff ended in a brutal 34-10 defeat to Ireland. The Kiwi coach does have an excellent record against the Scots though, having never lost to them while in charge of Wales.
