Ireland overcome Italy comprehensively in first Six Nations return

Ireland has won their first Six Nations game back after Covid-19, beating Italy with a scoreline of 50-17.

The game, which was played behind closed doors, seen a myriad of tries from CJ Stander, Hugo Keenan, Will Connors, Johnny Sexton, Bundee Aki and Dave Heffernan.

Italy never really looked to be a problem for Ireland, with the boys in greens quality materialising throughout the game.

Ireland now look forward to next Saturday, where a meeting with France in Paris is on the cards for their next Six Nations clash.
