Livestream Italy vs Ireland: Preview Six Nations
Andy Farrell’s men will be looking for another big step towards the Grand Slam on Saturday, when Ireland take on Italy at Rome’s iconic Stadio Olimpico in this crucial Six Nations match.
After flying past Wales in their opening game of this year’s tournament, the Irish were even more impressive in match week 2 as they ended France’s 14-match winning streak with a stunning 32-19 victory over the defending champions in Dublin.
The Italians gave a good account of themselves against the French in their 24-29 Six Nations opening day defeat, but took a notable step back last time with a 31-14 capitulation to England at Twickenham.
The Azzurri are boosted by the return of Paolo Garbisi from injury, with Harlequins’ Tommaso Allan making way for first-choice fly-half. Saracen tighthead Marco Riccioni, meanwhile, is replaced by Simone Ferrari in the only change to the Italian peloton.
Ireland’s huge victory over France came at a cost, with skipper Johnny Sexton sidelined with a leg injury. Second-row James Ryan has been given the captain’s armband in Sexton’s absence, while Ross Byrne starts as fly-half.
Italy vs Ireland kicks off today at 2.15pm GMT / 9.15am EST, Saturday, February 25, at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Make sure you know how to watch a live stream of the 2023 Six Nations between Italy and Ireland.
