Furlong and Henderson miss out as Ireland make five changes

Furlong and Henderson miss out as Ireland make five changes

"In Wales we've known for a long time we've got a big pool of back row boys but now it's come to fore".

Two games in and the doomsday scenario has not yet played out. The prognosis on Tadhg Furlong's hamstring strain, picked up against Italy, is good and he expects to be available to face Wales.

"So for a player who hasn't been there before, yes, it's a bit more pressure".

It has been a tough start to life for new France boss Jacques Brunel after his side lost their opening two games and some of his players were disciplined after going out in Edinburgh following their defeat in Scotland.

I think it would be insane to underestimate this game and underestimate Scotland at home in Glasgow. Against no other nation have they registered more.

Cardiff 's Josh Navidi has been a revelation this season, so much so that Lion's openside Justin Tipuric has been relegated to the bench. It will be great to see the likes of Izzy Noel-Smith get out from the start; her and Marlie [Packer] have a fierce battle for that seven shirt so she will be really chomping at the bit to get out there.

"We know that Ireland are able to rack up massive scores against Italy because of the way they defend, but the last real test for Ireland was France in round one".

I continue to fully support the University's efforts to fully investigate this matter and am confident that I will be vincicated. Pitino issued denials of wrongdoing before and after he was sacked at Louisville in October, and Miller has pleaded innocent.

Ireland v Wales games have been highly competitive in recent years. The good news is that Ringrose is expected to line out for Leinster this week and will hopefully be available for Ireland in two weeks. It's not ideal but you're not down and out. The 2008 and 2012 Grand Slam winning campaigns, and another title in 2013. "They've done it before and can definitely do it again".

After a World Cup warm-up game between Ireland and Wales in 2015, Gatland served Schmidt and Ireland with the most backhanded of compliments.

Gatland's pre-November claim that Wales' potential to win next year's World Cup in Japan was a greater motivating factor for him staying as head coach after last summer's British & Irish Lions tour than the hefty loyalty bonus built into his contract was greeted with scepticism.

In all, five Munster players have been selected to start the game against Warren Gatland's Welsh side.

CJ Stander is back at No 8 for Ireland's Six Nations match against Wales in Dublin on Saturday. "I think anyone who does analysis will say "yes we do", there are some changes in what we do, and I'm obviously not going to explain them, that's your challenge, I guess".

Asked if Ireland was the strongest team in the championship, Gatland gave an emphatic, "No". As a player you want sessions to be short, you want to feel you've got something from it, and that's the way he coaches.
