Watch: Peter O'Mahony's brilliant offload and reaction against Italy

Debutants Hugo Keenan and Will Connors claimed three tries and the player-of-the-match award between them as Ireland powered to a 50-17 bonus-point win over Italy on Saturday.

Keenan scored down twice in the first half before Connors registered a 60th-minute try with the pair helping Andy Farrell's men back to winning ways and straight to the top of the Guinness Six Nations table.


With the game secure, Ireland went about posting a big scoreline which saw the likes of captain Jonathan Sexton, Bundee Aki and replacement hooker Dave Heffernan all dot down for scores.

Aki's try, in particular, was superb with replacement flanker Peter O'Mahony producing a moment of magic as he delivered a sweet offload to Bundee Aki.




Dave Heffernan's scored after Aki to make it 50-10 before 20-year-old flyhalf Paolo Garbisi produced his own moment of magic to make it 50-17 at full time as Ireland kept their chances of winning the 2020 Six Nations alive.
