Ireland's Paddy Jackson scores a try against Wales during the RBS 6 Nations match at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.

Four penalties by Jonathan Sexton and tries scored off the back of the superb Irish maul by Chris Henry and Paddy Jackson were a more than fair reflection of Ireland’s dominance.

The contest saw Wales outplayed at the ruck, out-muscled at the coalface and out-thought across the park on a day when the Joe Schmidt era officially kicked into overdrive.

Ireland next play England on 22 February for the Triple Crown.
