Ireland Get Ready For 6 Nations Clash With Italy

AFTER THEIR last-gasp 15-13 win against France last week, Ireland areaiming to make another big statement against Italy in Dublin.

Italy lost out 46-15 to England in Rome last weekend in their opening Six Nations clash.

A similar scoreline in favour of Ireland would not be a surprise given recent encounters between the nations, with the emerald isle claiming 58-15 and 63-10 victories in the last two editions of the Six Nations and if Schmidt's men are to be in contention come Round 5, a bonus-point is a necessity on home soil this weekend.

Ireland are making light work of Italy at the Aviva Stadium this afternoon, leading 42-0.

Our friends at Rugby World have guides to the Ireland Six Nations squad and Italy Six Nations squad waiting for you.

Promising back Jordan Larmour, who has scored six tries in 14 games since making his Leinster debut, was named among the replacements but came off the bench to make his senior worldwide bow.

Henshaw was hurt in the act of scoring his second try as Ireland ran out 56-19 winners in Dublin to maintain their ideal start to the tournament.

The Azzuri struggled to keep the hosts at bay and a third try came midway through the first half when imposing centre Bundee Aki showed formidable strength to outmuscle two Italy defenders and power through to score.

Ireland made their intent clear early on as Johnny Sexton went for touch instead of the posts, but the Italians managed to hold Conor Murray up as he crossed the line.

The procession continued after the restart as Henshaw went over in the 44th minute but he sustained an arm injury in the process and was forced off to be replaced by 20-year-old Larmour. He was then withdrawn along with Murray and things began to get a little more sloppy.
