The two teams will square off tomorrow, Saturday 10 April at Cardiff Arms Park.

Kick off will be at 5pm.

Fans of Irish rugby can tune in to watch it live on RTร‰ 2 this weekend.

It's been a quiet year for the Ireland's women's rugby team so far. They've played just two matches in the last year - England in February and Italy last October.

However, things will finally pick up for the women's squad as they face Welsh rivals tomorrow afternoon.

On the other hand, Ireland's men's team have been rather busy over the last few months. After months of lockdown, the team returned to the pitch in October and have played 11 Test matches since.

This year, the format of the championship is slightly different. Officials divided the nations into two groups, Pool A and Pool B. Ireland join France and Wales in the latter, while Pool A consists of defending champs England as well as Scotland and Italy.

Round one got underway last week as England were victorious over Scotland, while France defeated Wales.

Round two will be the start of Ireland's campaign for the Six Nations trophy. Tomorrow will also see Italy play England.

Later, on Saturday April 17, Ireland will play France at home in Donnybrook at 2:15pm.

Finals day will take place later this month with three matches going ahead on Saturday April 24th.

Just months ago, Brian O'Driscoll addressed the discrepancy in treatment between men's and women's rugby.

"It's about time that the women's game has seen some promotion," he said. "Women are promoting and pushing the rock downhill - preaching to the converted - with other women. I think the responsibility lies with men to promote it."
