WATCH: Ireland Beat Wales in Opening Autumn Nations Cup Tie

Ireland kicked off their Guinness Series Autumn Nations Cup campaign with a convincing 32-9 victory over Wales at the Aviva Stadium.

The victory was Ireland’s fourth on the bounce over Wales as the 2019 Grand Slam Champions slump in form continued. Wayne Pivac’s side have now lost their last six games which is certain to pile more pressure on the beleaguered coach.

The result came at a cost, however, with out-half Johnny Sexton suffering a hamstring strain following a penalty kick. Sexton confirmed the hamstring strain in the post match interview and will undergo a scan tomorrow.

Ireland’s tries came form Quinn Roux and debutant James Lowe with kicks from Sexton, Billy Burns and Conor Murray. Leinster’s Caelan Dorris was superb and turned in a man of the match performance.
