Andrew Trimble senses 'big opportunity' for Six Nations hat-trick

Wing Andrew Trimble says Ireland have "a big opportunity to make a bit of history" as they begin their bid to secure a hat-trick of Six Nations titles against Wales in Dublin on Sunday.

Trimble is back in the Ireland set-up after missing the Rugby World Cup in the autumn after suffering injuries in the run-up to the tournament.

"We have done a lot of homework (on Wales) and we know ways to exploit this side. There are ways to get round this Welsh defence," argued the Ulster player.
