ROME: Ireland scored seven tries in a 48-10 bonus-point victory over Italy on Saturday to earn their first win of this year’s Six Nations and condemn the hosts to a 30th consecutive defeat in the tournament. Tries from Garry Ringrose, Hugo Keenan and Will Connors gave the visitors a seemingly unassailable 24-point first-half lead, but Italy hit back before the interval when Johan Meyer touched down in the corner. CJ Stander muscled over to secure the bonus point for Ireland and Connors and James Lowe added further scores while Italy had two men in the sin bin, before substitute Keith Earls dotted down a seventh Irish try after the final move of the game in Rome. Ireland climbed above Scotland and England in the table into third place with seven points, although both those teams have a game in hand. Italy remained bottom of the standings without a point.
