England vs Ireland Six Nations 2014: Game Time, Date, Venue, Channel, Livestream

February 21, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

It’s England vs Ireland in the Six Nations 2014 tournament on February 22.

The two teams will play at Twickenham, with kick-off slated for 16:00 GMT. 

There doesn’t appear to be an official online livestream partner, but people can watch live on BBC One or listen live on BBC Radio 5. The game will also be broadcast on Setanta in pan-Asia and/or TV5 Monde in Pan-Asia, ESPN in Oceania, Vrazil, and Mexico; beIN Sports in the USA; and ESPN Sur in Latin America, according to the official broadcast lineup. 

The teams have a long history of facing off, dating back to 1875, reported BBC. England has 73 wins to Ireland’s 46.

England has won the last three Tests between the teams, including two in the Six Nations–completely shutting Ireland out–after losing three straight to Ireland prior.

However, Ireland has won on three out of the past five trips to Twickenham and are the only nation to have an overall winning record against England in the Six Nations. 

Out of the two games played so far this season, England has two wins and Ierland has one.

For England, a relatively major change is David Wilson replacing the injured Dan Cole as tight-head-prop. George Ford was named to the replacement’s bench.

Ireland replaced Dan Tuohy and Tommy O’Donnell on the bench with Iain Henderson and Jordi Murphy.

Ireland’s strong showing against Wales prompted a no-change to the starting line-up, but Captain Paul O’Connell tempered expectations in an interview posted on the official tournament website. 

“There is a good buzz about the team,” said O’Connell, who was won three times before at Twickenham. “But the confidence is certainly not sky high. It’s realistic.”
