Alvarez-Kovalev 2 and Lopez to stream live on ESPN+ at 12 a.m. ET

Oscar Valdez-Carmine Tommasone featherweight world title fight and Richard Commey-Isa Chaniev lightweight world title bout to air live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes beginning at 10 p.m. ET

FRISCO, Texas (Dec. 19, 2018) — Four significant fights, three world title bouts, one rematch for the ages, all on ESPN and ESPN+. The best card of 2019 is coming to North Texas.

The hotly anticipated light heavyweight world title rematch featuring WBO champion Eleider “Storm” Alvarez and challenger Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev will stream live on ESPN+ and headline a huge night of boxing that will showcase a quartet of meaningful fights — including three world title bouts — spread across ESPN/ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ on Saturday, Feb. 2 at Ford Center at The Star, home to the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and training facility.

Alvarez-Kovalev 2 and the return of unbeaten lightweight sensation Teofimo “Brooklyn” Lopez, fresh off a 44-second knockout of Mason Menard on Dec. 8, will stream live starting at 12 a.m. ET on ESPN+ — the multi-sport, direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer & International segment and ESPN.

Before the action turns to ESPN+, a pair of world title fights will take place on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, beginning at 10 p.m. ET.

Oscar Valdez will make the fifth defense of his WBO featherweight title against the unbeaten Carmine “Mr. Wolf” Tommasone. Valdez will be making his first ring appearance since suffering a severely broken jaw in a March 10 unanimous decision win against an overweight Scott Quigg.

In the ESPN-televised co-feature, presented by DiBella Entertainment, Richard Commey will battle Isa Chaniev for the vacant IBF lightweight world title.

Before the ESPN telecast, the entire undercard will stream live on ESPN+ starting at 7 p.m. ET.

Valdez (24-0, 19 KOs) made his name as one of the sport’s foremost action stars with a trio of 12-round wars against Miguel Marriaga, Genesis Servania and Quigg. The Quigg fight was shrouded in controversy as the Englishman missed the featherweight limit by nearly three pounds and refused a day-of weight check. Valdez fought with a broken jaw against Quigg for more than half the fight and still managed to prevail via clear unanimous decision. Valdez, whose jaw was wired shut for two months after the bout, is ready to move on and prove that the injury was nothing more than a speed bump.

“It will be great to see our little warrior, Oscar Valdez, back in action on Feb. 2 after his full recovery from a broken jaw and a courageous victory over Quigg,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum. “Oscar always brings thrills and excitement to his fights.”

“The fans can expect the same Oscar Valdez as far as being an aggressive and exciting fighter,” Valdez said. “They are also going to see a different side that nobody has seen, which is the boxing skills that I also have and that I’m perfecting and learning with my new trainer, Eddy Reynoso.”

Tommasone (19-0, 5 KOs), an eight-year pro from Avellino, Campania, Italy, is a former Italian, European and WBA Intercontinental champion who will be making his first ring appearance outside of his home country. He captured the vacant European crown on Sept. 26, 2015 with a wide unanimous decision win against Jon Slowey. Tommasone made history at the 2016 Rio Olympics as the first professional to take part in an Olympic boxing match. One of three pros to participate at the 2016 Olympics, Tommasone won his opening bout before losing to the eventual bronze medalist, Cuba’s Lazaro Alvarez.

Lopez (11-0, 9 KOs) has established himself as one of the sport’s rising superstars, a 21-year-old power-punching prodigy who is on the cusp of a world title shot. The one-punch KO of Menard, a “Knockout of the Year” candidate, was televised by ESPN on the Vasiliy Lomachenko-Jose Pedraza undercard. Following the knockout, Lopez went viral after he struck the Heisman pose and wore the jersey of Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray of the University of Oklahoma.

“I took over my last show, and I am going to do it again,” Lopez said. “‘The Takeover’ is coming to Texas, and I can’t wait to get back in the ring.”

Commey (27-2, 24 KOs), a native of Ghana and the IBF’s No. 1 contender, has won three consecutive bouts since a two-fight losing skid. He lost a razor-thin split decision to Robert Easter Jr. for the vacant IBF lightweight title on Sept. 9, 2016, knocking down Easter in the eighth round. Less than three months later, he was on the short end of another split decision, a controversial verdict against Denis Shafikov in Shafikov’s home country of Russia. Commey last fought Aug. 4 against Yardley Armenta Cruz and had little trouble in notching a second-round TKO.

Chaniev (13-1, 6 KOs) is battle-tested, having gone 10 rounds or more in five of his past six bouts. He is on a three-bout winning streak since a close 12-round unanimous decision to Fedor Papazov on May 25 of last year. He is coming off his most impressive victory to date, a unanimous decision against former interim lightweight world champion Ismael Barroso. Chaniev survived a second-round knockdown to score a pair of knockdowns and secure the win.

“When I started working with Richard in September 2016, our plan was to give him another chance to fulfill his dream of becoming a world champion,” promoter Lou DiBella said. “While Chaniev is a very tough Russian fighter, I’m confident that Richard has the skills, punching power and the mental toughness to come out victorious. Thanks very much to ESPN and Top Rank for partnering with DiBella Entertainment in televising this outstanding lightweight championship battle.”

“I have to say a big thank you to my promoter, Lou DiBella. I know how hard it is for Ghanaian fighters to get promoted by the top promoters, but Lou has consistently shown that if he thinks you’re the man, then he will be the man for you,” Commey said “He has shown this by the investment DiBella Entertainment has put in me and by getting me this shot at the title and securing it in the United States. I also want to thank my manager, Michael Amoo-Bediako, for the faith he has put in me over all these years. He is more than a manager to me, and come Feb. 2, I will be repaying him in full.”

“I have the biggest motivation ever to win, and there is no other result that will satisfy me,” Chaniev said. “On Feb. 2, I will demonstrate all my skills and hard preparation. Some people don’t think I will win, but they will be shocked on Feb. 2. No bad words or any disrespect to Commey. He is an excellent fighter.”

Eleider Alvarez vs Sergey Kovalev

Eleider Alvarez vs Sergey Kovalev: Fight Odds, Time, Date, Live Stream, TV Info.Sergey Kovalev needs a win in a bad way on Saturday night if he is to resurrect his flagging career. “Krusher” is 2-3 in his last five fights, and he will be looking to get back to championship status in his rematch with Eleider Alvarez at the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

Last time out, Alvarez knocked Kovalev down three times in the seventh round to claim a TKO-win and earn the WBO world light heavyweight title he will be putting on the line Saturday. In case you forgot, or haven’t seen it yet, here’s a quick recap:

Kovalev was the champion in that match and, even with his two losses to Andre Ward not long behind him, still considered one of the most fearsome boxers around. But the undefeated Alvarez knocked Kovalev out of the pantheon, establishing himself as a fighter to be reckoned with in the process.

Kovalev, 35, doesn’t have much time left to re-establish himself as a preeminent boxer, and it’s possible he won’t get a chance at all, win or lose. He faces a felony assault charge frm a June 2018 incident, two months before the Alvarez loss, where he allegedly punched a woman in the face.

The rematch could turn out to be another blockbuster win for Alvarez.

Here’s how to watch.
Alvarez vs. Kovalev Fight Info

When: Saturday, Feb. 2 at 9 p.m. PT, 12 a.m. ET

Where: Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas

TV: BoxNation (UK only)

Live Stream: ESPN+, BoxNation.com (UK only)

Odds: Alvarez -175 (bet $175 to win $100), Kovalev +145 (bet $145 to win $100)

It wasn’t all that long ago Kovalev was the dominant, world-beating force at light heavyweight. The slugger brutalized his opponents, at one point stopping 12 of 13 opponents, the only exception being a decision win against the great Bernard Hopkins. And then came the Ward fights.

Kovalev lost the first fight against Ward in November 2016. He managed to knock Ward down in the second round, only to fade late, allowing Ward to pick up a close unanimous decision that some might argue should’ve gone to Krusher.

In the rematch, it was again back-and-forth until the eighth round, where a stunning right hand to the jaw and some bruising punches right at the belt-line proved to be too much for Kovalev to handle. The referee waved it off with Kovalev slumped against the ropes, exhausted and broken.

So Kovalev had lost twice, but not terribly so, and this is Ward we’re talking about. Maybe Kovalev was still a boxing god, but more like Hephaestus, working with a hammer but still slightly imperfect, and he had picked a fight with Zeus.

A couple of stoppage wins led Kovalev to that loss to Alvarez, and now he looks like he belongs nowhere near boxing’s current Olympus.

Alvarez might not have the same level of fame as Kovalev, but he is a menacing fighter in his own right. He’s yet to take a loss, and he has beaten tough fighters like Jean Pascal, Lucian Bute and Isaac Chilemba. The 34-year-old Colombian has staked his claim to fame beating Kovalev, but it doesn’t mean he’s necessarily the better boxer. Ward doesn’t think so.

“Alvarez is not a better fighter than Sergey Kovalev,” Ward said, per ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael. “But he’s got heart. He’s got momentum. And he’s emboldened.”

The boxing world will find out what, if anything, Kovalev has left to offer at the top level on Saturday night. If Alvarez beats him handily, Kovalev’s time as a championship contender is all but over.

But then the next question will arise: What does Alvarez really have to offer? He will still have only defended his title once. It will take much more than that to reach the pantheon.

Italy vs Scotland

 Italy vs Scotland : In the Six Nations, even worse.Scotland vs Italy has lost its last 17 tests, 10 of them under O’Shea. If, as everyone predicts, Italy loses again on Saturday to Scotland at Italy va Scotland Murrayfield, that’ll be No. 18, and the RBS Six Nations championship’s new standard of despair. Italy will leave behind the France team of 1911-20.

Scotland vs Italy Live Stream: How To Watch Rugby Six Nations 2019 Online Free TV Coverage

Like tortured veterans retelling the horrors of conflict, delve into the recesses of a Scottish rugby supporter’s mind and there will lurk deep reservoirs of sorrow inflicted by Italian tormentors.No Scot wants or needs to relive these harrowing days but here are the cliff-notes.

In 2000, Scotland were reigning Five Nations champions. Italy, un-fancied tournament greenhorns expected to take their spankings and be bloody well grateful for their seat at the top table. Of course, their grinning little provocateur Diego Dominguez and his band of warriors had other ideas, and duly walloped their illustrious guests 34-20.

There was an insipid Rome loss in 2004, in the midst of Scotland’s most depressing championship in a generation. The hideous, stomach-churning show of self-harm in 2007 when Scotland quite literally threw away three tries in six minutes, setting Italy on their merry way to a first away win in championship history.

Andrea Marcato’s howitzer drop-goal followed in 2008. Then unfathomable losses in 2010 and 2012 and, most recently, an astonishing collapse in Edinburgh four years ago.With good reason, Italy have long regarded Scotland as the juiciest of targets, the most fertile ground for a Six Nations triumph.

Dan Parks, the former Scotland fly-half who played Italy seven times, says it best when recounting one Roman conquering – in truth, he might be speaking about any of those five defeats on Italian soil.“Somehow we managed to lose, which is what we did in Rome quite regularly. I don’t know why, but we did. If you don’t get away from them, they stick with you. If you get away, you’re OK, but if you don’t, you’re screwed. It’s really tough.”

Scotland didn’t get away from Italy last year. In fact, they had to do a hell of a lot of work just to keep pace with Conor O’Shea’s barnstormers. Greig Laidlaw got them there – just – but it’s a game most in the Scottish camp recognise should have been lost.

The defeat was a gut-punch for Italy, a blow cruellest and most keenly felt by their totem and captain, the great Sergio Parisse. It would seem an insult not to preface Parisse’s name with some acknowledgement of his incalculable contribution to rugby, particularly rugby in Italy, but on that day last year, he suffered his 100th loss in the colours of his country. Seldom can a player of such awesome brilliance be on the receiving end of so brutal a statistic.

Parisse has 134 caps – a mountainous haul even in the modern era – but only 34 victories. That day in Rome was his most recent outing. Saturday will mark his 66th Six Nations Test match, nudging him to the summit of the appearance standings, beyond another marvel of the game, Brian O’Driscoll.

Video Spacer You could write enough pages to fill a library when you sit down to analyse Parisse’s incredible skill-set and rousing leadership, but his legacy will be the monumental graft he and O’Shea have invested in hauling Italian rugby from its anarchic state into the professional realm.

At 35, this is likely Murrayfield’s last chance to watch the colossus go to work. We should all rejoice to have been rugby fans in the days of Sergio.

Parisse will be there – of course he will – but O’Shea has been shorn of some of his most impressive firepower from last season. Matteo Minozzi, the electric full-back who scored four tries in 2018, is out. So is back-row Jake Polledri, who bludgeoned and galloped through the Scottish defence at will, and winger Mattia Bellini, who played in every minute of last year’s championship.

Still, for the first time in an age, Italy have a wave of invigorating young talent and in Benetton, a professional team threatening to do something in the Pro14. Kieran Crowley’s team are second in Conference B with seven wins in 14, sitting above Edinburgh, Scarlets and Ulster.

O’Shea is confident Italy are getting to a place where their credibility in the championship can no longer be questioned, where consistently good performances yield wins, and wins are no longer shocking. For now, though, their record is undeniably grim.

That euphoric afternoon in the Edinburgh drizzle back in 2015 was their last championship victory. Seventeen defeats in a row and only one win over Scotland in their past 10 matches.

The record book is hardly kind to the Scots either. In eighteen tournaments, they have won their opening game twice – no coincidence that in both 2006 and 2017, they finished in their best-ever placing of third.

Gregor Townsend equalled that standing in his first Six Nations at the helm a year ago. The 2019 schedule has been about as kind to the Scots as it reasonably can, in a tournament where three of the world’s top four-ranked sides prowl.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend will hand a Test debut to Glasgow centre Sam Johnson when his side open their Guinness Six Nations campaign at home to Italy on Saturday.

Newcastle flanker Gary Graham – previously called up by England coach Eddie Jones – and Leicester hooker Jake Kerr could also win their first caps if they appear off the bench.

Edinburgh full-back Blair Kinghorn, meanwhile, will start on the left wing as the Dark Blues welcome the Azzurri to Murrayfield.

With Edinburgh resurgent under Richard Cockerill this season, Townsend has chosen to go with the capital outfit’s tight five. Hooker Stuart McInally will squeeze in between props Allan Dell and WP Nel, with Ben Toolis and Grant Gilchrist forming the second row.

Exeter lock Sam Skinner will slot into the back-row after showing he can fill in at flanker during his impressive introduction to the national team set-up during the autumn, with Ryan Wilson and Jamie Ritchie completing the back-row.Skipper Greig Laidlaw will partner Racing 92 star Finn Russell in the half-backs, while Australia-born Johnson – who qualifies on residency grounds after signing for Glasgow in 2015 – lines-up alongside Huw Jones in midfield.

Stuart Hogg will again provide an attacking threat from full-back as he slots in beside Kinghorn and Tommy Seymour in the back three.

Townsend said: “It’s a privilege to be involved in the Guinness Six Nations, a tournament that has grown in quality over the past few seasons. You can sense the excitement throughout the rugby world on the eve of this year’s Championship and we’re looking forward to starting our campaign at BT Murrayfield.

“Italy have made life tough for Scotland in every Test match we’ve played. I remember that as a player, as a supporter and as a coach – and they were better than us in most of last season’s contest in Rome. They played with pace, were physical and we had to play really, really well in the final quarter to win.

“That performance and also the recent displays of Benetton Treviso are sharp reminders for our players that this will be a difficult fixture.

“Our challenge is to win the physical battle, which is a strength of Italian rugby. We will also have to bring energy and accuracy in order to get our campaign off to a winning start.”

Italy make six changes to the side that lost to New Zealand 66-3 last November with Sergio Parise back in the starting line-up to lead what is expected to be his final Six Nations campaign. The 35-year-old will win his 135th cap for Italy, and leads a pack that will see Leonardo Ghiraldini win his 100th Test cap and also has uncapped lock David Sisi in the second row and Abraham Steyn moving from No 8 to openside flanker, making way for Parisse and covering for the injured Gloucester back-row Jake Polledri.

Parisse will surpass Brian O’Driscoll’s record of 65 Six Nations appearances when he takes to the field at Murrayfield.

In the backs, Tito Tebaldo and Scotland Under-20 international Tommaso Allan continue at half-back, with Exeter’s Michele Campagnaro moving from centre to wing to allow Luca Morisi to start in the No 13 shirt. The final change to the side sees Angelo Esposito start on the right wing.

Scotland: (15-9) Stuart Hogg; Tommy Seymour, Huw Jones, Sam Johnson, Blair Kinghorn; Finn Russell, Greig Laidlaw; (1-8) Allan Dell, Stuart McInally, WP Nel; Ben Toolis, Grant Gilchrist; Sam Skinner, Jamie Ritchie, Ryan Wilson.

Replacements: (16-23) Jake Kerr, Jamie Bhati, Simon Berghan, Gary Graham, Josh Strauss, Ali Price, Adam Hastings, Chris Harris.

Italy: (15-9) Jayden Hayward; Angelo Esposito, Luca Morisi, Tommaso Castello, Michele Campagnaro; Tommaso Allan, Tito Tebaldi; (1-8) Andrea Lovotti, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Simone Ferrari; David Sisi, Dean Budd; Sebastian Negri, Abraham Steyn, Sergio Parisse.

Replacements: (16-23) Luca Bigi, Cherif Traore, Tiziano Pasquali, Federico Ruzza, Jummy Tuivaiti, Guglielmo Palazzani, Ian McKinley, Edoardo Padovani.

Starting with two home games, the first against the weakest side in the championship, is especially welcome since Scotland haven’t won in Ireland since 2010, in Wales since 2002, or France and England since 1999 and 1983. Italy, then Grand Slam behemoths Ireland visit Murrayfield in the opening two weeks. If Scotland are to match or better third place, the Azzurri must be subdued.

Townsend loves to launch a curveball when the time comes for team selection but his line-up for the opening weekend bears no great surprises.

Sam Johnson, the Glasgow centre, gets his long-awaited debut after injury denied him a cap in the autumn. Johnson is a wonderful tale, a Queenslander who rocked up in Scotland three-and-a-half years ago looking to play some rugby and stave off what he thought was an inevitable return “to the real world”. He fancied he’d be an electrician or some other tradesman back in Brisbane by now with the rest of his mates. Instead, he’s about to become an international.

Johnson arrived a little on the pudgy side, tentative and virtually silent in his early days at Scotstoun. His qualities as a player were obvious – scything line-breaks, sumptuous hands and fearsome tackling. Townsend saw it and so did his successor, Dave Rennie. With his residency period complete, he’s in the squad and has a tantalising chance to make the 12 jersey his own while so many of his rivals occupy the treatment table.

Moreover, it is in Scotland where Johnson has become a man and learned how to be a professional, where he has met “a beautiful Scottish girl” and where his heart now lies. Those who peddle vacuous statistics about “foreign-born players” ought to spend a little time in his company.

Outside Johnson, Sean Maitland’s nous and defensive savvy will be missed but the rangy Blair Kinghorn offers speed, line breaks and excellent off-loading. His Edinburgh colleague Darcy Graham is desperately unlucky not to feature after a scintillating period with his club.

Edinburgh’s snarling tight-five will bring ballast and a formidable set-piece, although of two of the club’s most effective pack members, Viliame Mata and Blair Schoeman, are not Scottish. A crying shame in particular that “Big Bill” does not have a Scottish granny.

Jonny Gray is injured but even if he were fit, he’d have had an almighty job displacing Ben Toolis and Grant Gilchrist from the boiler house. Sam Skinner will be a valuable asset on the blind-side flank, even if John Barclay and Hamish Watson leave sizeable holes in the back-row.

There are some high-profile absentees, for sure, but if Scotland are serious about a title challenge, they have to develop the sort of depth that allows for near-seamless rotation. They have to handle being favourites too, as they will be on Saturday, and they absolutely have to do better on their travels.

The Scots want to be gazing upwards at the summit and licking their lips at the heavyweights blocking their path, not glancing behind them at the Italian train doing its utmost to run them down.

I remember that as a player, as a supporter and as a coach – and they were better than us in most of last season’s contest in Rome. They played with pace, were physical and we had to play really, really well in the final quarter to win.

“That performance and also the recent displays of Benetton Treviso are sharp reminders for our players that this will be a difficult fixture.

“Our challenge is to win the physical battle, which is a strength of Italian rugby. We will also have to bring energy and accuracy in order to get our campaign off to a winning start.”

Italy make six changes to the side that lost to New Zealand 66-3 last November with Sergio Parise back in the starting line-up to lead what is expected to be his final Six Nations campaign. The 35-year-old will win his 135th cap for Italy, and leads a pack that will see Leonardo Ghiraldini win his 100th Test cap and also has uncapped lock David Sisi in the second row and Abraham Steyn moving from No 8 to openside flanker, making way for Parisse and covering for the injured Gloucester back-row Jake Polledri.

Parisse will surpass Brian O’Driscoll’s record of 65 Six Nations appearances when he takes to the field at Murrayfield.

In the backs, Tito Tebaldo and Scotland Under-20 international Tommaso Allan continue at half-back, with Exeter’s Michele Campagnaro moving from centre to wing to allow Luca Morisi to start in the No 13 shirt. The final change to the side sees Angelo Esposito start on the right wing.

Scotland: (15-9) Stuart Hogg; Tommy Seymour, Huw Jones, Sam Johnson, Blair Kinghorn; Finn Russell, Greig Laidlaw; (1-8) Allan Dell, Stuart McInally, WP Nel; Ben Toolis, Grant Gilchrist; Sam Skinner, Jamie Ritchie, Ryan Wilson.

Replacements: (16-23) Jake Kerr, Jamie Bhati, Simon Berghan, Gary Graham, Josh Strauss, Ali Price, Adam Hastings, Chris Harris.

Italy: (15-9) Jayden Hayward; Angelo Esposito, Luca Morisi, Tommaso Castello, Michele Campagnaro; Tommaso Allan, Tito Tebaldi; (1-8) Andrea Lovotti, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Simone Ferrari; David Sisi, Dean Budd; Sebastian Negri, Abraham Steyn, Sergio Parisse.

Replacements: (16-23) Luca Bigi, Cherif Traore, Tiziano Pasquali, Federico Ruzza, Jummy Tuivaiti, Guglielmo Palazzani, Ian McKinley, Edoardo Padovani.

Starting with two home games, the first against the weakest side in the championship, is especially welcome since Scotland haven’t won in Ireland since 2010, in Wales since 2002, or France and England since 1999 and 1983. Italy, then Grand Slam behemoths Ireland visit Murrayfield in the opening two weeks. If Scotland are to match or better third place, the Azzurri must be subdued.

Townsend loves to launch a curveball when the time comes for team selection but his line-up for the opening weekend bears no great surprises.

Sam Johnson, the Glasgow centre, gets his long-awaited debut after injury denied him a cap in the autumn. Johnson is a wonderful tale, a Queenslander who rocked up in Scotland three-and-a-half years ago looking to play some rugby and stave off what he thought was an inevitable return “to the real world”. He fancied he’d be an electrician or some other tradesman back in Brisbane by now with the rest of his mates. Instead, he’s about to become an international.

Johnson arrived a little on the pudgy side, tentative and virtually silent in his early days at Scotstoun. His qualities as a player were obvious – scything line-breaks, sumptuous hands and fearsome tackling. Townsend saw it and so did his successor, Dave Rennie. With his residency period complete, he’s in the squad and has a tantalising chance to make the 12 jersey his own while so many of his rivals occupy the treatment table.

Moreover, it is in Scotland where Johnson has become a man and learned how to be a professional, where he has met “a beautiful Scottish girl” and where his heart now lies. Those who peddle vacuous statistics about “foreign-born players” ought to spend a little time in his company.

Outside Johnson, Sean Maitland’s nous and defensive savvy will be missed but the rangy Blair Kinghorn offers speed, line breaks and excellent off-loading. His Edinburgh colleague Darcy Graham is desperately unlucky not to feature after a scintillating period with his club.

Edinburgh’s snarling tight-five will bring ballast and a formidable set-piece, although of two of the club’s most effective pack members, Viliame Mata and Blair Schoeman, are not Scottish. A crying shame in particular that “Big Bill” does not have a Scottish granny.

Jonny Gray is injured but even if he were fit, he’d have had an almighty job displacing Ben Toolis and Grant Gilchrist from the boiler house. Sam Skinner will be a valuable asset on the blind-side flank, even if John Barclay and Hamish Watson leave sizeable holes in the back-row.

There are some high-profile absentees, for sure, but if Scotland are serious about a title challenge, they have to develop the sort of depth that allows for near-seamless rotation. They have to handle being favourites too, as they will be on Saturday, and they absolutely have to do better on their travels.

The Scots want to be gazing upwards at the summit and licking their lips at the heavyweights blocking their path, not glancing behind them at the Italian train doing its utmost to run them down.

Ireland vs England team news and line-ups

England’s ranks have been bolstered by the return of several key players including Billy Vunipola, though Ben Te’o, Brad Shields and Joe Cokanasiga will all miss the opening fixture through injury.

Jones has opted to retain Elliot Daly at full-back despite Mike Brown’s proven ability to operate under the high ball, with the latter – along with Joe Launchbury – missing out altogether as Chris Ashton is preferred as a replacement.

George Kruis – and not Courtney Lawes – gets the nod in the second row alongside Maro Itoje as England look to utilise the lineout, while Manu Tuilagi is set to make his first Six Nations start for almost six years at inside centre and Jack Nowell is recalled to the wing.

Tuilagi partners Henry Slade in midfield as captain Owen Farrell starts at fly-half and George Ford settles for a place on the bench.

As for Ireland, centre Robbie Henshaw will make a rare start at full-back instead of Rob Kearney and Josh van der Flier pips the fit-again Sean O’Brien on the openside.

Influential scrum-half Conor Murray returns to the starting XV after missing the autumn Tests with a neck injury.

Ireland XV: Henshaw; Earls, Ringrose, Aki, Stockdale; Sexton, Murray; Healy, Best (c), Furlong; Toner, Ryan; O’Mahony, Van Der Flier, Stander

Replacements: Cronin, Kilcoyne, Porter, Roux, O’Brien, Cooney, Carberry, Larmour

England XV: Daly; Nowell, Slade, Tuilagi, May; Farrell (c), Youngs; M.Vunipola, George, Sinckler; Itoje, Kruis; Wilson, T.Curry, B.Vunipola

Replacements: Cowan-Dickie, Genge, Williams, Lawes, Hughes, Robson, Ford, Ashton

TV channel and live stream, and online coverage

ITV and the BBC are sharing broadcasting rights for the Six Nations for the third successive year, with ITV hosting Ireland vs England on its main free-to-air channel and via the ITV Player.

Score prediction: Ireland 20-10 England

While there is always a chance that an improved England side with the majority of their key operators fit could catch Ireland cold on the opening weekend, it is incredibly difficult to pick against this current Ireland team in what is certain to be a lively atmosphere.

England have struggled in Dublin since ending a 10-year winless run there back in 2013, losing 19-9 in 2015 before a 13-9 defeat that ended their winning run two years ago.

Dallaglio: Ireland must use Six Nations as World Cup springboard

Ireland begin their Grand Slam defence against England and Joe Schmidt’s side have been backed to use the Six Nations as a springboard to Rugby World Cup glory, writes Martyn Thomas.

The reigning champions have lost just once in their last 19 Test matches and will start the Aviva Stadium clash as slight favourites to retain their Championship crown.

England remain the only northern hemisphere team to lift the Webb Ellis Cup and their 2003 triumph was built on a Six Nations clean sweep.

Lawrence Dallaglio was a vital cog in that side and although he does not see Ireland going unbeaten this spring – such is the strength of their Six Nations rivals – he does see a resemblance between Schmidt’s side and Sir Clive Woodward’s World Cup winners.

“They’re very good, they’re very settled as well – that’s key,” Dallaglio said at the launch of the Guinness Clear campaign.

“There are a lot similarities with our England team in 2003 going into World Cup year. They’ve not lost for a long, long time.

“If everyone’s fit the team sort of picks itself, there’s one or two maybe hairline decisions on whether you go with one player or another. It’s more or less very settled, so that’s their strength.

“It’s now just about fine-tuning their game and moving forward towards what is going to be a real launch in terms of trying to win the World Cup.”

Paddy Power advert could backfire on Ireland, warns legend

World Cup winner Paul Grayson says the Irish have made a mistake by poking fun at England, writes Alex Spink.

Grayson was taken aback to see an advert by a ‘proud sponsor of Irish rugby’ apparently mocking English rugby’s fall from grace in the 2018 Six Nations.

“Now accepting trade-ins on broken chariots,” runs Volkswagen Ireland’s slogan above a moving image of the wheels falling off a chariot.

Another, by bookies Paddy Power, referred to the 800 years of English rule over Ireland — and the fact they have lost the last two meetings.

Grayson said: “The best teams are normally the quietest, which is why the VW ad for Ireland is a slightly interesting one.

“I saw it and thought ‘Oh, okay. That’s their first misstep, that is not like Ireland under Joe Schmidt’.

“People say gone are the days of putting a newspaper article on the walls of the changing room. But human nature is human nature. So maybe they have just poked the nest.”

Supercross San Diego

Supercross San Diego Preview: Bring An Umbrella.The monkey wrenches continue to be thrown in the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Championship Series. It rained at the A1 opener, won by Justin Barcia, and it will almost certainly rain at San Diego’s Petco Park at race time on Saturday—the current prediction is a 98 percent chance of rain.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

That means any predictions anyone has for the San Diego Supercross are pretty much null and void. Regardless, let’s take a look at where we are after four rounds.

1. Despite starting the season with 5-10 finishes, Cooper Webb will carry the red plate at Petco Park in San Diego. In a year where the top four preseason favorites (now down to three due to Jason Anderson’s broken arm) have yet to win a race, Webb’s pair of victories at the last two races puts him in the points lead. Don’t fit Webb (Red Bull KTM) for the crown just yet. He’s only two points ahead of Ken Roczen, three points ahead of Eli Tomac, and four points ahead of Marvin Musquin. They are nipping at his heels, but Webb has two consecutive wins and it is going to be a wet one in San Diego. Webb’s P5 finish in the A1 slop wasn’t bad.

2. Ken Roczen is moving in the wrong direction. Roczen’s season has gone 2-3-4-5, and it doesn’t take trigonometry to know what number is next in that sequence. Roczen (Team Honda HRC) ran the red plate at rounds three and four, but he lost it to Webb last week. Even though Roczen is running P2 in the points, he needs to turn things around. In his favor, he took P2 in the Anaheim 1 rain.

3. Marvin Musquin is moving in the right direction. Musquin (Red Bull KTM) started the season with a handicap—an injured knee. It appears to be healing, and Musquin has gone 8-5-2-2. While Musquin hasn’t quite looked like a winner yet, he’s definitely close. His P8 finish at A1 might make you think he’s not going to do well in the coming San Diego mud. However, that was when his knee was bothering him much more than it is now. Musquin could win at Petco Park.

4. After four rounds, Eli Tomac has finished no better than P3. His 3-4-3-4 season is consistent, but those are mediocre results for the rider many observers considered to be the preseason favorite after winning the 450 National title last year, along with $1 million at the Monster Energy Cup. Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki) had a win in one of the three Mains at the A2 Triple Crown, and he looked great taking that victory. For whatever reason, he hasn’t put it all together, but at least he hasn’t fallen apart. Tomac is just three points off the series lead.

5. If Justin Barcia’s tailbone is feeling better, he has to feel good about the San Diego forecast. Barcia (Monster Energy/Yamaha Factory Racing) won at the muddy opener and might repeat at San Diego in similar conditions. However, should his tailbone still be the source of significant pain, it could be a long Main for Barcia. He’s another great unknown this week.

6. Don’t count Dean Wilson out for a win at Petco Park. On his privateer bike, Wilson finished in P4 at Anaheim 1. The rain returns, and this time Wilson will be getting significant help from Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing. It could be enough to boost him onto the podium, and it could result in Wilson’s first-ever 450SX Main win. We have already had two first-ever winners—Webb and Blake Baggett—and there is no reason that there can’t be another one this week.

7. If you play fantasy supercross, Blake Baggett is a leap of faith. This year, Baggett (Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/WPS/KTM) has gone 12-1-15-3 at the first four rounds. If Baggett keeps that pattern up, he won’t be in the top 10 at San Diego. Given that Baggett finished in P12 in the A1 rain, that’s probably not out of the question.

8. Keep an eye on Justin Bogle, as he may have figured out his last-minute ride. Filling in on the Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/WPS/KTM team after Benny Bloss tore his ACL has not been easy. Bogle went 19-15-17 in the first three rounds—not good. However, he grabbed P10 last week in Oakland, so he may have the setup on his KTM figured out. On the downside, Bogle was a P19 finisher at A1. Like Baggett, he is a tough one to call for fantasy supercross enthusiasts.

9. NBCSN will be airing the San Diego Supercross live on Saturday. That means 10 p.m. ET. If you have NBC Sports Gold, you can watch qualifying coverage—which is impressive—at 4 p.m. ET. The chance of rain during qualifying is about 80 percent, so you might get a good idea of how the Main is going to go.
