Italy 10 – 48 Ireland
Ireland claim their first win of this year’s Six Nations against a poor Italy in Rome.
Ireland responded to their worst start to a Guinness Six Nations campaign by running in six tries during a bonus-point win over Italy.
Captain Johnny Sexton, returning from a head injury, added all six conversions and two penalties as Andy Farrell celebrated the first away win of his tenure.
