Pool B has already seen one of the great tension-filled, top-quality, high-stakes Rugby World Cup matches at Stade de France. 

South Africa versus Ireland – world champions against the number one ranked side – was one for the ages. Two weeks later, at the same venue and with the stakes higher still, it is very possible the same pool could produce another.

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell has made two changes to his starting side, with Iain Henderson coming into the second row for James Ryan, and Dan Sheehan taking over at hooker from Ronan Kelleher. Flanker Peter O’Mahony will win his 100th Ireland cap.

Scotland have picked themselves up after their opening round defeat to South Africa to record two bonus point wins in a row and give themselves a shot at the last eight. To get there, they have to beat Ireland – something they haven’t managed since 2017. 

Second-row Grant Gilchrist, scrum-half Ali Price and right-wing Darcy Graham retain their places in the starting XV after the 84-0 win over Romania, in Gregor Townsend squad, with captain Jamie Ritchie returning at blindside flanker.
