Ireland and Scotland begin their World Cup experience in Yokohama on Sunday in sport which could determine who finishes high in Pool A, even.
Joe Schmidt’s Ireland facet have endured a fairly rotten run since beating New Zealand although despite some performances that they enter the World Cup as the planet’s number one rated side.
The men in green recovered their confidence using back-to-back victories over Wales, which saw the return of a couple of men especially dominating World Player of the Year Johnny Sexton after being humiliated at Twickenham by England.
But before this critical battle, Schmidt has been made to shuffle his pack to backs Rob Kearney Robbie Henshaw and Keith Earls injuries. The fascinating Jordan Larmour and Andew Conway will get their opportunity to shine on the stage in rugby.
Gregor Townsend has gone for his tried and tested on the whole, however, the midfield watch’s Duncan Taylor and Sam Johnson start together for the second time.

After missing the rest of the competition and departing the corresponding Six Nations fixture, Stuart Hogg is termed at full-back in a rear three that contains two additional British Lions in Sean Maitland along with Tommy Seymour.
Conditions seem set to be wet and humid at Yokohama and it’ll be interesting to observe two sides with such styles manage this.
My bet for this particular match centers around Conor Murra,y among the world’s finest scrum-halves, with a fairly good hit rate against the Scots — together with three tries in seven appearances. Close to the line there are not many variety nines at getting low and forcing score.
