Italy v Ireland Match Reports

Ireland got their championship back on track with a dominant 63-10 bonus point win over Italy at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. A brace of first half tries from both Keith Earls and CJ Stander saw Ireland collect the four-try bonus point by the 35th minute. Early in the second half, CJ Stander scored Ireland's fifth try to complete his hat-trick. Craig Gilroy then claimed his own hat-trick after coming on as a substitute. With Gary Ringrose also scoring, the nine-try romp was Ireland's biggest ever Six Nations victory. A selection of match reports is listed below:
