Sporty Seth wins Six Nations tickets thanks to 'rugby buddy' mum

Joe Schmidt at the Aviva Stadium

Italy are seeking only their second Six Nations triumph over Ireland, who have won 17 of the 18 past tournament clashes between the sides.

Lisa Willington, 43, entered Principality Building Society's competition offering rugby lovers the chance to join the 74,500-strong crowd on Saturday at the sold out Wales v Scotland match at Principality Stadium.

"We are happy with the win but will always find something to improve on".

Promising back Jordan Larmour, who has scored six tries in 14 games since making his Leinster debut, was named among the replacements but came off the bench to make his senior worldwide bow.

The changes are all in the pack, with Luca Bigi is in for Leonardo Ghiraldini at hooker, Nicola Quaglio at loosehead replacing Andrea Lovotti and Braam Steyn at openside in for Renato Giammarioli.

From there it was one-way traffic and a second try soon arrived when some delightful interplay led to scrum-half Murray darting over to score.

The US Reaches Milestone in Oil Supply
At the same time, "you've seen a general strengthening in the USA dollar". But rising US oil production has been looming over the market.

She noted all of the changes Ireland had made to the side that had started the game as a potential reason for the score conceded in the second half, and claimed concentration came be a problem in games when a side is winning comfortably, as "it's hard sometimes to build yourself up when you're winning by so much".

Sexton's fourth goal made it 28-0 at the break and effectively finished the match as a serious contest as well as securing the bonus-point.

An update is expected on Sunday after Henshaw has a scan on the injury.

IRELAND demolished Italy thanks to irresistible Johnny Sexton and double tries from Robbie Henshaw and Jacob Stockdale.

Joe Schmidt believes Ireland are "in a good place" after the Aviva Stadium stroll past Italy, even taking the positives from the ragged edges that allowed the visitors in for three tries.

But Schmidt will not only be annoyed at the three scores from Tommaso Allan, Edoardo Gori and Matteo Minozzi but injuries suffered early in each half.
