<div align='center'> Italy v Ireland</div> The one thing people will hope for with Italy is no more clangers in selection from Mallet. You can't overestimate how much of an absolute clanger that was. Even if Italy were to have picked an underage scrumhalf they would have been better off than with Bergamasco. Mallet has a lot to be answerable for after that call. Ireland will be perfectly happy though with the circumstances surrounding the Italians. There'll be extra pressure on Italy to perform following that performance and selection at Twickenham, while Ireland should just go about their job calmly as Kidney teams tend to do. Given the last 2 games between these sides Ireland will be looking for a marked improvement in the performance from those 2 matches and that should go a long way to getting the victory. Should be an Ireland victory but I'd expect a backlash from the Italians, it's how Ireland handle that which will go a long way to deciding this game.
