And Italy have their first points on the board with a try by Bettoni.
Two tries in less than 10 minutes for Ireland. Italy have a huge task at the moment.
A lot of handling errors, in this first half with a number of lineouts but few points being added on the scoreboard. Italy need to come back fighting in the second half to get points on the board and close the 8 point difference.
Ruck infringement by M. Sillari - penalty kick is good.
Good start, keep those tries coming!
A great Try By Wall, after breaking free from two tackles.
Welcome to the Ultimate Rugby coverage of the match between Ireland Women (8th) and Italy Women (5th) in this Six Nations clash. Italy will be looking for a win here today to prevent them from falling down two places to 7th, which they just gained with their win against Scotland last weekend. Ireland unfortunately will not be able to improve their 8th place position, as even a win by 15 points or more will still leave the trailing Italy by 0.08 rating points. I am Mandy Leventis and I will be updating all scores and events. May the best team win. Kick off in 20 minutes.
