Ireland vs Tonga: Rugby World Cup kick-off time, TV channel, team news, lineups, odds

In their quest to lift the Webb Ellis Cup for the first time, the Irish are enjoying being eased into proceedings with this the second of two Pool B games against smaller nations that they are widely tipped to win.

Romania were brushed aside last week in a 12-try onslaught in the searing heat of Bordeaux that saw captain Johnny Sexton’s return and another bonus-point victory is expected here, before they face holders South Africa and a Scotland side likely to need a win to have any chance of progressing to the quarter-finals.
