Ireland v Wales player ratings: 2022 Six Nations

Ireland v Wales player ratings as Andy Farrell’s men started their 2022 Six Nations with a bonus-point win in Dublin.

The hosts got off to the perfect start when Bundee Aki dived over unchallenged with Johnny Sexton converting. The fly-half then slotted a penalty to make it 10-0, which is how it stayed at half-time despite Ireland’s complete dominance.

Nevertheless, Wales stubborn defence fell apart after the break with Andrew Conway scoring a brace before Garry Ringrose touched down to secure the try scoring bonus-point.

The visitors did get a consolation try through Taine Basham, but they were never really in the game
