Live Six Nations Rugby Union (RTE 2, 5pm)

Coverage of the final match of the championship, which takes place at the Aviva Stadium. This fixture was always expected to be key when the schedule was announced, but Ireland’s defeat to Wales last time out ended their chances of winning the title and handed England the spoils. There’s a world record winning run and a Grand Slam on the line for the visitors though – so plenty to play for. It’s the hope that kills you.

The RTÉ Choice Music Prize (RTÉ 2, 11.10pm)

Blathnaid Treacy presents live from the music award show, that took place in Dublin’s Vicar Street last week, and featuring performances by some of this year’s nominees. This year the shortlist for Album of the Year features nominations for All Tvvins, Bantum, Wallis Bird, The Divine Comedy, Lisa Hannigan, Katie Kim, James Vincernt McMorrow, Rusangano Family, We Cut Corners and Overhead, the Albatross.

Lucy (Channel 4, 9pm)

Premiere. A courier is kidnapped and forced to become a drug mule. When she is exposed to the experimental chemicals she is smuggling, it boosts her intelligence and reflexes to superhuman levels. Sci-fi thriller, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman
