Big Interview - Stephen Ferris on why Scotland will struggle to beat Ireland

By Peteso Cannon

Jim Hamilton and Stephen Ferris sat down in the RugbyPass Dublin offices to look ahead to today’s must-win game for both Ireland and Scotland, discussing among other things the matchup in the centres.


Garry Ringrose returns to the thirteen jersey for Ireland after a lengthy layoff to face the in-form Huw Jones.

The centre hasn’t played an international since Ireland’s summer tour of the USA and Japan.

He missed the autumn series with a shoulder problem, while an ankle injury saw him miss out on the first three matches of the 6 Nations.

It’s the third time in the Championship that Ireland have had to change their centre combination, after injuries to Robbie Henshaw and Chris Farrell.

The pair also discussed the critical situation Ulster Rugby finds itself in, having gone through five managers in just four years.
