Ireland’s visit to Italy this afternoon kicks-off another weekend of Six Nations action.
The match, staged at Stadio Olimpico in Rome, is the first of three matches to take place, and will be shown live on ITV.
Ireland start as favourites against the Azzurri and have only lost one Six Nations to the Italians, which occurred in 2013 at this stadium.
Italy are now coached by former Ireland full-back Conor O’Shea, which should add an extra element to proceedings, but anything less than an away win would see Ireland’s chance of glory being significantly damaged.
Coverage starts at 1.30pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Mark Pougatch is joined in the studio by Brian O’Driscoll, Jonny Wilkinson, Lawrence Dallaglio, Martin Bayfield, Maggie Alphonsi and Marco Bortolami.
Match commentary comes from Nick Mullins, Gordon D’Arcy and Ben Kay.
The BBC will broadcast Wales v England from 4.15pm this evening, and France v Scotland from 2.15pm on Sunday afternoon.
