Ireland vs Wales score predictions | OTB's rugby experts call it

Ahead of Ireland vs Wales this weekend, OTB Sports asked all of our rugby pundits this week how they see the game going as the Six Nations gets back underway. 

After the ups and downs of Ireland's November series of internationals, there is some trepidation surrounding where Andy Farrell's team is at heading into the opening game of the Six Nations on Sunday.

Then again, after OTB's Ger Gilroy and Eoin Sheahan started an international incident with their assessment of Ireland's seemingly forlorn opponents earlier this week, Wayne Pivac has been encouraging onlookers to hold off on judging his Wales team until this weekend's game is over - for better or worse.

All week on OTB Sports we have been building up to Sunday's game with a range of experts and we can now tell you how they are all calling this Six Nations opener.

Ireland vs Wales | Here's how OTB's rugby pundits have called it

Brian O'Driscoll: Ireland to win by 3 or 4 points

Between Ger's disregard for the best Wales have to offer and the prospective difference Paul O'Connell will make to the Ireland set-up, Brian O'Driscoll had plenty to mull over this week.

Ronan O'Gara: Wales 22-27 Ireland
Mike Phillips: Ireland 25-15 Wales

There was plenty to talk about including but beyond Sunday's game when Ronan O'Gara and former Welsh international Mike Phillips joined us mid-week.

Alan Quinlan: Wales 16-23 Ireland

Former Ireland international Alan Quinlan set about naming his combined Ireland-Wales XV when he joined us on Friday's OTB AM. What do you make of his selections?

Keith Wood: Ireland to win by 15 points... or they have their pants pulled down.
Niamh Briggs: Ireland 22-15 Wales

The former Ireland captain captured some of the uncertainty surrounding this weekend's game. On the one hand he fancies Ireland to do it, but you just never know...

Ross Harries: Ireland 26-17 Wales

The Welsh presenter of BBC Wales Scrum V, Ross Harries joined OTB AM mid-week to ease tensions after Ger and Eoin caught flak across the Irish Sea.
