Is Scotland vs Ireland on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Six Nations fixture

Scotland welcome Ireland to Murrayfield in the Six Nations this afternoon.

Gregor Townsend’s side sealed a famous victory over England at Twickenham on the opening weekend but saw their momentum halted in a heartbreaking defeat against Wales before the tournament was thrown into chaos by an outbreak of coronavirus within France’s squad, which led to Scotland’s fixture with Les Bleus being suspended.

Townsend has made four changes from the side that faced Wales, with the suspended Zander Fagerson being replaced by WP Nel.

Meanwhile, Ireland are hoping to resurrect what’s been a difficult campaign, with back-to-back defeats against Wales and France to begin the tournament. Andy Farrell’s side cruised to victory against Italy a fortnight ago but will be desperate to produce an emphatic performance today.
