Ireland vs Wales

The match – and the bonus point – were done and dusted in the first half as Ireland romped to a 31-10, wind-assisted lead at half time.

It took the Irish just a minute to get on the board – a try by flank Mark Hernan. He charged down an attempted clearance by scrumhalf Dafydd Buckland and fell on the ball for his first try of the match.

Wales won the second half 17-5, which was not enough to make up for the first-half deficit.
