The Principality Stadium roof will be left open for Wales' Six Nations Grand Slam game in Cardiff against Ireland, despite yellow wind warnings set for Saturday.

Wales is being battered by Storm Gareth this weekend, but even though the weather forecast is set to be grim for the match, Ireland have requested that the lid is taken off the Cardiff stadium.

On Thursday Ireland boss Joe Schmidt suggested that Wales might have broken Six Nations protocol by asking tournament organisers to allow them to close the roof for the match as heavy rain and 40mph winds are forecast.
