Wales chasing the clock now, desperate to get ball in hand but Ireland patient in their contact and clearly in charge of the game.

Ten minutes to go.

Wales haven't had much ball but they've shown they don't need much to grab points. Ireland's defense will be tested this half, but expect a lot more ball in hand to avoid the wind and to diminish the turnovers.

Woof. We are halftime in , probing, lively play from both teams this first half, but a general sense of quiet composure waiting for chances, with quick, short breaks wherever possible.

Fair to say won the first half, both in points and territory, will want to get their hands on the ball to engineer more opportunities in the second half.

Refresh your beverage of choice, back in ten. I foresee a violent second half.

history. The tournament is over 100 years old, and these two teams have met many times, always to passionate crowds and fierce, open play.

Aki makes a darting break with numbers on his left. Wales penalised for not relaeasing and although it's eminently kickable Irealnd opts for touch. Ireland try to pile on the pressure with a driving maul but Wales turn it over and it is swings and roundabouts all over at Aviva.

Sexton is not happy with Roman's finding but it's red scrum on the Welsh 5.

Eight minutes gone and it's been three major assaults by Ireland, Wales only 30% possession so far, very eager Irish ball. Defense is good though. Passionate opeinng play.

Tompkins gets his first start for Wales, North back on the wing, Ringrose is out injured, Soctland look to cement last week's positives, and Arthur Vincent gets his first start for Bleus

See you Saturday!

The clock is red and England are going through over a dozen phases to drive up to the line. France take the closing minutes to practice their defense yet again, and history repeats itself as England flollop forward and proffer the ball to willing French jackalling hands. Half-time and wowwee wee wah what a half for this young French team.

New head coach in Andy Farrell takes charge of a somewhat changed , last seen being drubbed by in the . Finn Russell is of course not in the squad, Hopefully this will be a bit more even of a match than Wales' outing against Italy, but the bookies have Scotland 7 to 1 so... probably not. Scotland haven't beaten Ireland in Dublin since 2010
