Ireland may not be winning this year's Six Nations, but they put in a performance to be proud of in the fourth round.

The hosts ran in nine tries against Italy with Jamie Heaslip scoring twice and Andrew Trimble, Jack McGrath, CJ Stander, Jared Payne, Sean Cronin, Ian Madigan as well as Fergus McFadden all joining him on the scoresheet.

Italy did manage to get two tries of their own through David Odiete and Leonardo Sarto, but the game was well won by that point.
