Form Guide

These are two teams in very different form. On one hand, Ireland are unbeaten and second place in the table, a single bonus point separating themselves and England. Out of the three games Ireland have taken two bonus points and overcome Wales, Italy and France. They overcame France by just two points in what was an extremely tight encounter, but comfortably beat Wales and Italy scoring over 40 points in each game.

On the other hand, Scotland have won just a single match out of their three, beating Wales but losing to both France and England leaving them fifth in the table and on just five points. While they only lost to England by five, they managed to beat last-place Wales by just a single point and were thrashed by France 54-12 not even scoring in the second half.  Ireland's attacking prowess has been unbelievable throughout the tournament scoring more points than any other team, that will be a huge problem for Scotland who have been dire in defence, conceding more than any other team in the Six Nations.


Their polar opposite form leaves Ireland heavy favourites for Friday's game, but Scotland are home and while a win would be a massive upset for the Scots much stranger things have happened in Six Nations rugby.
