Scotland, fresh from ending their record breaking run of losses with back to back wins over Italy then France, travel to Ireland to take on a team under Joe Schmidt who need to bow out on a high.
For Vern Cotter’s men, the importance of this Aviva Stadium clash cannot be overstated, as they look to prove that their transformation from also-rans to genuine European heavyweights is real.
A first win over France in a decade certainly went some way to backing up a promising World Cup, but a third straight victory would be an even bigger step.
Not since 2006 had Scotland beaten les Bleus, but more importantly, it was the last time they won three games in the Championship.
They can match that this weekend, but face an Irish team which finally cut loose last weekend, putting Italy to the sword.
The Scots will be a lot tougher to break down, but there was a freedom to Ireland which had been absent up to now.
It is certainly easy to overlook how close Ireland have been to a very successful Championship.
It’s worth giving our betting preview to the final round of Six Nations fixtures with Betsafe a read, which is available on the Betsafe site. You can also find All Black legend Sean Fitzpatrick’s thoughts ahead of the games, and Planet Rugby’s too.
Despite some major absentees, they managed a draw with Wales, a one-point loss in Paris, and gave England a real scare before going down at Twickenham.
A third straight title was beyond them, but they are not as far off the pace as their early results showed.
Against Scotland they will certainly be tested up front, and defensively, but it was only a year ago that the Irish dispatched Scotland with ease.
Since then the Scots has brought in a couple of key players, not least WP Nel, but the loss of Jonny Gray could really hurt them.
Still, if they are to really stand out as a force in Northern Hemisphere rugby, they need to be competitive at the very least on Saturday.
