After suffering a crushing defeat against England, Ireland bounced back to get their Rugby World Cup preparations back on track with an excellent 22-17 victory against Wales last weekend. Having struggled to just three points in the first half in Cardiff, Welsh coach Warren Gatland will be hoping for a much improved performance from his side in this turnaround fixture.
Sounds like an intriguing match-up then…we'll tell you how to get an Ireland vs Wales live stream from absolutely anywhere you are today.
With Joe Schmidt’s World Cup squad selection having been made, much of the focus in the run up to this game as been on the omission of Devin Toner in the final list of Irish names heading to Japan, with Munster’s Jean Kyler controversially selected ahead of the experienced lock.
While arguments rage among Irish rugby fans on the decision, it's likely most will agree that an expected first start of the warm-up fixtures for Johnny Sexton in this match will be a major positive in their World Cup preparations. While the Irish were great in the first 60 minutes at the Principality Stadium, Schmidt will be looking to address what caused his side to tail off in the game’s closing stages last weekend.
There was also surprise omissions in the 31-man Welsh World Cup squad named at the weekend, with Rob Evans and Samson Lee among the shock names to miss out on the tournament. But with those tough choices out of the way, coach Warren Gatland will now be hoping the players he has settled upon can draw a line under last weekend’s defeat and take heart from how they nearly turned last week’s match around.
