Certainly the way they reduced the Azzurri to so much rubble will do their confidence levels no harm whatsoever ahead of the visit of Wales' in a fortnight's time.

A similar scoreline in favour of Ireland would not be a surprise given recent encounters between the nations, with the emerald isle claiming 58-15 and 63-10 victories in the last two editions of the Six Nations and if Schmidt's men are to be in contention come Round 5, a bonus-point is a necessity on home soil this weekend.

Mourinho hoodoo continues as Newcastle stuns Man United 1-0
United manager Jose Mourinho responded immediately by sending on Michael Carrick and Juan Mata for Pogba and Jesse Lingard. A huge chance fell the way of the Frenchman in the 35th minute when he was played through on goal by Nemanja Matic .

A sensational opening round will be a tough act to follow, but you can rest assured, the Natwest Six Nations will show no signs of relenting in Round 2 with some fierce action set to unfold.

"Two of the tries came from the attack".

Italy made three changes from the loss to England, with Braam Steyn, Nicola Quaglio and Luca Bigi all selected.

Italy for their part fought to the end, scoring three second-half tries but slipped to their 14th successive Six Nations defeat, equalling their previous worst run in the tournament.

Colts make Reich head coach
The Eagles offense cruised through the playoffs despite having to turn to quarterback Nick Foles after Carson Wentz was injured. The Colts found an offensive coach and former quarterback who should be a good fit with Andrew Luck , assuming Luck is healthy.

Aki, whose earlier try was his first for his adopted nation, showed off his pace to set up the fourth as he sucked in the Italian defence to put winger Keith Earls clear to secure the extra point before halftime. He was then withdrawn along with Murray and things began to get a little more sloppy.

The Leinster back left the field with his injured right arm in a sling, but head coach Joe Schmidt is holding on to hope Henshaw may have avoided serious injury.

Stockdale soon had his second and Ireland's eighth before Italy grabbed a third late on through Matteo Minozzi.

Canada sheds 88000 net jobs, but sees full-time gains
