Ireland sweat on Henshaw injury after Italian stroll

  • Fullback Jordan Larmour is putting pressure on Rob Kearney for the No.15 jersey for club and country

"He's a lot more conformable now which is promising but what's not promising is the degree of discomfort he was in", coach Joe Schmidt told a news conference, saying Henshaw could potentially miss the championship and that Ireland will know for sure on Sunday.

This thumping eight-try success was both predicted and predictable and was lapped up by the raucous Irish support at the Aviva Stadium.

Our friends at Rugby World have guides to the Ireland Six Nations squad and Italy Six Nations squad waiting for you.

Ireland were last crowned Six Nations champions in 2015 and they were facing an Italy side who have now lost 13 of their last 14 Tests.

The former Ireland international's side are looking to bounce back from defeat by England in their opening Six Nations match.

Dan Leavy makes his first global start coming in for the injured Josh van der Flier, Jack Conan makes his Six Nations debut at number 8, while there are also starts for Devon Toner and Jack McGrath.

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.

Saskatchewan Unemployment rate second-best among provinces in the country
The wage improvements in January arrived the same month that saw Ontario take the controversial step of raising its minimum wage. Economists look at the number of jobs in a community rather than the unemployment in determining an area's economic health.

Quaglio, after three appearances off the bench, comes in for Andrea Lovotti while Steyn replaces youngster Renato Giammarioli in a strengthening of the scrum.

Henshaw opened the scoring in the 12th minute and, two minutes later, Conor Murray scored the pick of Ireland's tries after great hands by Conor Murray.

A strong carry from Bundee Aki provided the third score and the Connacht man led the break to set up Keith Earls to secure the bonus point before the break.

Bonus point secured, job done.

.

However, with the game long gone the Italians found some spark and Tommaso Castello got the better of Dan Leavy to release Tommaso Allan with the fly-half going over and converting his try to put Italy on the scoreboard with just over 20 minutes to go.
