After clinching a dramatic, but somewhat fortunate, 15-13 victory over France in Paris last week, the Irish were more direct and clinical against a below-par Italian side at a packed Aviva Stadium.

Bonus point secured, job done.


It's too early to know exactly what injury Robbie Henshaw suffered but it didn't look good and we're going to assume that Ireland may have to plan without him for the rest of the tournament after he damaged his shoulder.

Henshaw opened the scoring in the 12th minute and, two minutes later, Conor Murray scored the pick of Ireland's tries after great hands by Conor Murray.

Johnny Sexton converted all four and the fifth following Henshaw's intercept try.

Italy struggled to build any momentum early in the second half, as Ireland became even more ruthless. And when captain Rory Best went over for Ireland's sixth try, the visitors were facing a humiliating defeat.

After captain Rory Best recorded his ninth worldwide try, Italy finally got off the mark as Tommaso Allan went over despite suspicions of a forward pass, only for Jacob Stockdale to promptly restore order.

But slack defending saw Allan and Gori run from deep to score with Italy's best try coming when full-back Minozzi touched down in the corner.

Henshaw's withdrawal afforded Jordan Larmour a maiden worldwide outing and Ireland's dominance continued, with Best grabbing a rare five-pointer, although Allan quickly responded in a brief moment of Italian resistance.

Subs: 16 Leonardo Ghiraldini, 17 Andrea Lovotti, 18 Tiziano Pasquali, 19 Federico Ruzza, 20 Maxime Mata Mbanda, 21 Edoardo Gori, 22 Carlo Canna, 23 Jayden Hayward.
