Six Nations Rugby: Ireland v Italy

1:00pm Saturday 25 February on BBC ONE

Gabby Logan presents live coverage of Ireland v Italy from Dublin, the third match of the tournament for each country.

When they met last year, Ronan O’Gara’s late drop-goal denied Italy their first-ever Six Nations victory over Ireland. Two Mirco Bergamasco penalties had helped the hosts to a 6-3 interval score and though Brian O’Driscoll’s try helped Ireland move 10-6 ahead, Luke McLean’s 75th-minute reply gave Italy a shock lead – before O’Gara’s intervention two minutes later. Though Italy once again finished bottom of the pile after five matches, they are a growing force.

Joining Gabby in the studio will be former Ireland captain Keith Wood, while match commentary comes from Andrew Cotter and Philip Matthews.
