Unchanged team for Ireland

Unchanged team for Ireland

IRELAND WILL field the same starting team it did against Scotland for its Six Nations clash against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.

First Ronan O’Gara once again gets the nod at first five ahead of youngster Jonathan Sexton for the clash at Millennium Stadium.

The 34-year-old played a starring role in the 21-18 win over Scotland on February 27, a result which has left Ireland joint second on the standings with Wales.

Both are level on four points, meaning whoever wins at the weekend will remain in the title hunt.

The game will also be flanker David Wallace’s 70th test for Ireland.
