Wales ready to take on Ireland but many of their supporters have no tickets for the rugby clash.

The Welsh rugby squad went through a training session at Monkstown Rugby Club Dublin in front of a large crowd. 

Ireland named two new caps in the team trying to prevent Wales from winning the Triple Crown. Tom Clancy and Denis McBride come into the pack. Irish coach Jim Davidson is confident that problems in previous games have been ironed out and believes the backs are playing better than ever.

The Welsh supporters have travelled to Dublin in large numbers but many have no tickets for the game at Lansdowne Road. 

I personally phoned up an advert in The Telegraph to try and get some tickets and I was quoted £185 for a stand ticket.
