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.

This match marks the 30th consecutive Six Nations defeat for Italy.
