Wales host Italy at the Principality Stadium and despite the disappointing loss at Twickenham they will send their fans home happy with a comfortable win over Italy who have fallen away as the tournament has progressed.  The Welsh will assert their physical dominance and this will create the space later on and a few late tries will see them win by 20 or more points. 

 

The most closely contested game of the weekend is most likely between the Irish and Scots in Dublin.  Ireland will be confident after dispatching the Italians comfortably the previous week and will want to sign off with a win to build on for their three test summer tour to South Africa. 

 

Scotland have promised to deliver and finally did so against France last week and will now seek to back this up in Dublin as they look to establish a consistency and edge to their play.  I think they might just sneak it if the forwards can gain an advantage in the set piece and be competitive at the breakdown the Scottish backs might get the space they need to secure their third victory, the first time they will have managed this since 2006.
