• Beaten by Scotland and France at home, England wants to save its Tournament by winning in Ireland.
  • If he wins, the Clover XV will win the Grand Slam.
  • The match will be played at the Aviva Stadium, which can accommodate 51,700 spectators.

Rarely has a match between Ireland and England seemed so unbalanced. The best rugby nation in the world, the first hosts the XV de la Rose, which is playing one of the worst tournaments in a long time.

This St. Patrick's weekend, the party promises to be green in Dublin. Unless the English come and ruin everything...

What time and on which channel to watch Ireland - England live?

All matches of the 6 Nations Tournament will be broadcast on France Televisions. This match between the Irish and the English will be broadcast on France 2, Saturday, March 18 at 18 pm.

Ireland touch the trophy with their fingertips

With 4 victories in as many games, the XV of the Clover impresses. If he does not thwart, it is difficult to see him losing at home to the English who chain the counter-performances.

After 1948, 2009 and 2018, Ireland can achieve the fourth Grand Slam in its history. Winners of France, Wales, Italy and Scotland, the Irish take on England in the final match of the tournament.

The Irish won both duels between the two teams. The last win in Dublin was in 2019. Ireland are obviously favourites for this decisive match.

Ireland's starting XV:

15. Keenan; 14. Hansen, 13. Henshaw, 12. Aki, 11. Lowe; 10. J. Sexton (cape), 9. Gibson-Park; 8. Doris, 7. van der Flier, 6. O'Mahony; 5. Ryan, 4. Baird; 3. Furlong, 2. Sheehan, 1. To wear.

England, for honour

Fifteen days after the debacle conceded against the Blues at Twickenham, the English move on the lawn of the best team in the world.

While they have nothing to play, England will want to show a better face. It will have all the French people behind it because a victory combined with that of the Blues against Wales would offer the trophy to Fabien Galtié's men.

Left on the bench against the Blues, Owen Farrell finds his place as starter and the captain's armband.

His replacement Marcus Smith said before the game: "It will be a big test of our solidarity, our determination as a team. These are complicated times. We need to keep our heads up. The challenge cannot be met much more than Ireland at home. There is only one path to follow, to get up and fight, to play as hard as we can for this jersey."

England's starting XV:

15. Steward; 14. Watson, 13. Slade, 12. M. Tuilagi, 11. Arundell; 10. Farrell (cape), 9. van Poortvliet; 7. J. Willis, 8. Dombrandt, 6. Ludlam; 5. Ribbans, 4. Itoje; 3. Sinckler, 2. George, 1. Genge (cap.).
