Wales vs Ireland rugby – Six Nations 2023: Stream FREE, TV, kick-off time



WALES couldn’t have asked for a tougher start to their Six Nations campaign as they’ll be taking on Ireland – the world’s number one rugby team.

Ireland had an incredible 12 months having beaten rugby giants South Africa and Australia.

And Andy Farrell made history in June 2022 by recording a victory over New Zealand on their own turf for the first time ever.

However, Ireland have lost their last four Six Nations fixtures in Cardiff since defeating Wales over a decade ago.

But Farrell’s men humiliated Wales when the side’s last met back in February 2022.
