Both sides had underwhelming campaigns in last year’s tournaments so both Joe Schmidt and Vern Cotter will be hoping for vast improvements this time around.

Schmidt’s Ireland had an impressive Autumn international series, pulling off victories over New Zealand, Canada and Australia while on home soil.

Scotland, meanwhile, narrowly missed out on a win over Australia, but beat both Argentina and Georgia in preparation for the tournament.

When is Scotland v Ireland?

Scotland host Ireland in the first match of the tournament on Saturday February 4th, with kick-off at 14:25.
