Ireland squad chasing big Six Nations milestone

Ireland opened up their 2024 Six Nations campaign with an impressive 38-17 win over France, before dusting Italy 36-0 at Aviva Stadium.

They face Wales, next up, on Saturday before travelling to Twickenham to take on England and finishing up, on March 16, by welcoming Scotland to Lansdowne Road.

No side has ever gone back-to-back with Grand Slams since the Six Nations came into being. It has been 26 years since the championship has seen a double Grand Slam – France achieving that feat in 1998.
