O2 MatchDay Live will keep you up to date with all the goings on in Dublin today as Ireland try to keep on the winning trail in the 2010 RBS 6 Nations and beat Wales for the second year running.

When these teams met at the Millennium Stadium last year, it was a hard-fought encounter that eventually went Ireland’s way on a 17-15 scoreline as the men in green clinched a thrilling Grand Slam.

Team captain Brian O’Driscoll and winger Tommy Bowe scored tries while in a never-to-be-forgotten finish, out-half Ronan O’Gara landed a match-winning drop goal and a last-gasp penalty effort from Wales’ Stephen Jones fell short of the posts.  

We will have live text commentary direct from Croke Park of Ireland’s fourth match of the 2010 Championship, with the hosts fielding an unchanged team and O’Driscoll hoping to mark his 100th Irish cap with a win.
