Head to Head

Ronan O'Gara v

Jonathan Sexton

The most obvious individual showdown because the battle between Ireland's top two out-halves is, undeniably, the most intriguing.

O'Gara had the better Six Nations in terms of overall consistency of performance, but Sexton finished in glorious style against England to reassert his pre-eminence, in the minds of the Irish rugby public, at least.

The Munster man has an exciting backline to work with this evening and the passing skills to unleash it, while Sexton has his own game-breakers to bring into play as well as carrying a running threat himself.

This contest could be decided by the place-kicking duel and who is provided the better platform by their forwards.
