We should beat Italy – Independent.ie Six Nations Panel
David Kelly and Ruaidhri O’Connor discuss Ireland’s penultimate game of the 2014 Six Nations and look briefly ahead to the final game against France.
The game will mark the final appearance of Brian O’Driscoll in an Ireland jersey in a home match in what will also be a world record 140th international appearance.
Joe Schmidt has made just one change, with injury forcing Peter O’Mahony out while Jonathan Sexton has shook off a hand injury to resume duty at out-half.
David and Ruaidhri discuss what lies in store for Ireland against the Azzurri, team selection and championship hopes.
