1.30 Scotland v Ireland Having been humbled on their home turf in a shock defeat by the Italians. the Scots face a stiff test of their resilience as they tackle an Irish side brimming with skill and confidence (kick-off 1.30). The
Irish will be riding high after their emphatic 43-13 victory over
England at Croke Park, and a win here will seal the Triple Crown and give them an outside chance to take the championship title.
Commentary comes from Andrew Cotter and Phillip Matthews. (5) (HD) Video Plus+ code for 1.00-3.30
3.30 Italy v Wales The Welsh won't be relishing their visit to
Rome as they face an Italian side who'll be on a high after recording their first away victory in the competition, 37-17 against the Scots (kick-off 3.30). Last year, the Welsh could only manage an unconvincing 18-18 draw against the Azzuri on home turf, and having already lost away to
Scotland earlier this year, could well be pushed all the way by an Italian side growing in confidence. Commentary by Nick Mullins and Jonathan Davies.

DRAMA Casualty 8.50pm BBC1
Richard Curtis co-wrote this heavily Comic Relief-themed episode, so you can expect a bit more lesson-learning than normal, particularly right at the end, when staff are given a few home truths about the reasons behind this week's funfest. Just about everyone in the hospital is fundraising, despite the vocal misgivings of tedious, lunk-headed boss Nathan. Brownies for a pound, sponsored sleep-outs - you name it, all money-earning ideas are here.
As is Brenda Fricker, making a welcome return to the wards after an 18-year-absence. She adds a bit of class to the proceedings and there's an unexpectedly touching scene where she soothes the distressed brow of her troubled, mentally ill grandson.
Watch out, too, for Angus Deayton, playing himself as a grumpy comic who's blackmailed into MC-ing the hospital's slave auction. Very silly. (Alison Graham, TV editor)
