Wales will be aiming for a much better showing in the 2021 edition of the Six Nations following a dismal defence of their title last time out. The Welsh side lifted the lot in 2019 during a spectacular Grand Slam year inspired by legendary captain Alun Wyn Jones. Coach Warren Gatland was replaced by Wayne Pivac and the results haven’t flowed so freely, to say the least.
Wales vs Ireland
Date: KO 21:00 GMT
Place: Principality Stadium
Time: 20:15 UTC
Kick-off is at 3pm in Cardiff.
Wales return to the Principality Stadium for their opening match of this year’s Six Nations against Ireland, but will it be home sweet home for Alun Wyn Jones and his team?
They played their home matches last autumn at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli because the Cardiff ground had been turned into a field hospital to help with the Covid-19 pandemic, but it has since been decommissioned and will serve its more traditional purpose as a rugby stadium during the championship 2021.
