Munster’s Oli Jager makes Ireland debut in Wales bonus-point victory | HIGHLIGHTS

Despite the tie shaping up to be a stroll in the park for Farrell’s side, the Welsh fightback came after the break.

Ireland continued their perfect start to their 2024 Guinness Men’s Six Nations on Saturday afternoon, as they secured a 31-7 bonus-point victory over Wales in the Aviva Stadium.

Munster prop Oli Jager came from the replacements to make his Ireland debut, joining Calvin Nash, Jack Crowley, Tadhg Beirne, Peter O’Mahony and Conor Murray as the Munster men on the pitch.

It was Munster’s Crowley who got Andy Farrell’s men off the board with a penalty after seven minutes, and he was on hand to nail the conversion following Dan Sheehan’s 21st minute try.

Nash was involved in a nice move which eventually ended with James Lowe crossing for his nation’s second try. A tough wide conversion was no problem for Crowley who handed his side a 17-0 lead they would take into the interval.

Despite the tie shaping up to be a stroll in the park for Farrell’s side, the Welsh fightback came after the break.

The visitors were awarded a penalty try just three minutes into the second-half, with Beirne being shown a yellow card for his part in the incident.

Ciaran Frawley dotted down for the hosts and Crowley was once again faultless on the conversion to extend his side’s lead once more.

Back on the pitch, Beirne touched down to secure the bonus point for Ireland, who made it three wins from three so far this campaign.

Next up for the Boys in Green is a trip to Twickenham to lock horns with England on March 9, kick-off at 4.45pm.
