Six Nations 2024: Costelow to start for Wales against Ireland

Fly-half Sam Costelow has been recalled in the only change to the Wales team for the Six Nations trip to Ireland on Saturday.

Coach Warren Gatland has retained faith in the bulk of the team that performed so well in narrowly going down 16-14 to England at Twickenham on February 10.

Costelow comes in for Scarlets team-mate Ioan Lloyd, who is among the replacements.

Also on the bench is uncapped Cardiff number eight Mackenzie Martin and Harlequins prop Dillon Lewis.

Gatland’s side are searching for their first win in the 2024 Six Nations following defeats to Scotland and England while Grand Slam-chasing Ireland have eased past France and Italy and appear in ominous form.

“We are excited to go out to Dublin and test ourselves against one of the leading sides in world rugby,” said Gatland.

“It’s a challenge we are relishing. We’ve made steps in the last couple of games and now it’s about building on that, learning from those experiences and taking that into this weekend.

“It’s about continuing to work hard, looking for accuracy in our performance across 80 minutes and also keeping our discipline.”
