Wales players have been given the all clear to face Ireland in the Six Nations after a second round of negative Covid-19 test results.

The squad returned negative tests on Tuesday and reported a repeat of that on Friday morning.

Wales return to the Principality Stadium for the tournament opener.

The game in Cardiff will be played behind closed doors with no fans present.

Wayne Pivac’s side played their 2020 autumn internationals at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli when the Principality Stadium was being used as a field hospital to help cope with the coronavirus pandemic.
