Having lost their opening two fixtures by a combined margin of three points, Wales' 2024 Six Nations games have been gripping, agonising and weirdly uplifting, though even the most dyed-in-the-wool fans may struggle to drum up much optimism for today's clash with Ireland at the Aviva Stadium.

Andy Farrell's men look a cut above, and are on course to become the first team to win back-to-back Grand Slams in the Six Nations era. By flattening France and Italy they extended their Six Nations winning streak to 10 games – beat Wales in Dublin and the reigning champions will match the record set by England seven years ago.

Not taking anything for granted, Farrell is hoping to have back row Caelan Doris and full-back Hugo Keenan available in some capacity, while hooker Dan Sheehan, the tournament's leading try scorer with three, will likely be the focus of much special attention.

Despite the defeats, the wonders worked by Warren Gatland are plain to see. This is a seriously inexperienced Welsh team that lost its star player on the eve of the tournament, yet they've pushed their opponents all the way. The move to recall fly-half Sam Costelow for Ioan Lloyd, however, has prompted some murmuring after Lloyd impressed against England and Scotland.
