After his concussion against Wales, the Irish captain, Jonathan Sexton is back. The Fly-Half is going to be on the field Saturday to take on Italy.

A good new for Ireland. Andy Farrell, the Irish head-coach, has disclosed the Irish start-list for the match against Italia for the Day 3 of the Six Nations. And we can see the return of the Irish captain, Jonathan Sexton. The Fly-Half had missed the game against France (lost 15-13) two weeks ago after a concussion sudden during the opening game against Wales.

Ireland needs to start the tournament 

The Irish fans are glad to see the return of Sexton on the field. Because the Irish team will have to relaunch Saturdays against Italia after two losses. Jonathan Sexton and with teammates lost the opening game against Wales 21-16 not help by O’Mahony. The Irish flanker has been excluded after only 13 minutes. During this match, the Irish captain Jonathan Sexton has sudden a concussion. He missed the next game against the France. Without this captain, Ireland lost against France, a first since 2011.

So, the Irish team come in Italia with a lot apprehension. They cannot lose a three lose in a row in this tournament. But Italia still a good opponent to reconnect with the win. The squaddra azzura hasn’t won a game in six nations since 2015. 

The game will start at 3.15 pm (local hour).
