Six Nations Preview Round 2

Six Nations 2018: Ireland await news on Henshaw's shoulder injury

Ireland ran in eight tries to make it two wins from two but lost Furlong to a hamstring injury early on and his British and Irish Lions team mate Henshaw left the pitch with his shoulder in a sling after getting injured scoring his second try.

There is talk that if any side is to deny defending champions England an unprecedented hat-trick of Six Nations titles, it will be Joe Schmidt's men.

Plenty of tries but still plenty to work on for Ireland in the weeks break next week, before welcoming Wales here the week after. Ireland eased to a 63-10 win over the Italians in Rome past year.

Ireland, well - Johnny Sexton, produced a moment which will enter rugby folklore in Round 1 as the Leinster Rugby fly-half landed a 45-metre drop-goal after 41 phases of play to snatch a last-gasp victory from the hands of France, while Italy were put to the sword by a rampant England, eventually being condemned to a 46-15 defeat in Rome. As a result Jordan Larmour was sprung from the bench to make his global debut.

IRELAND: Tries: Henshaw 2, Murray, Aki, Earls, Best, Stockdale 2; Conversion: Sexton 5, Carbery 3.

Bundee Aki got the third from close range and then sent Keith Earls away for the bonus-point score.

"We were a bit sloppy in the second half".

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".

The procession continued after the restart as Henshaw went over in the 44th minute but he sustained an arm injury in the process and was forced off to be replaced by 20-year-old Larmour.

Italy did get on the scoresheet following a further Rory Best effort for Ireland, but Tommasso Allan's score in the 56th minute and replacement Edoardo Gori's try were consolations in proceedings.
