Big Boost For Wales As Team Named To Face Ireland In Final Six Nations Round

Big Boost For Wales As Team Named To Face Ireland In Final Six Nations Round

The Wales team to face Ireland in the final round of the Guinness Six Nations on Saturday has been named.

It sees head coach Warren Gatland making no changes from the side which defeated Scotland at the weekend.

The availability of Liam Williams is a major boost to their Grand Slam hopes. Fullback Williams suffered a shoulder injury against Scotland which forced him to exit the game early in the second half.

Wales are aiming to win their third Grand Slam under Gatland in what will be his 50th match in charge.

It will also be Gatland's last Six Nations game as Wales head coach with fellow New Zealander Wayne Pivac set to take over following this year's World Cup.
