Ireland vs Italy player ratings: 2022 Six Nations

Ireland vs Italy player ratings as Andy Farrell’s side bounced back from defeat in Paris with a comfortable bonus-point win at the Aviva Stadium.

Debutant Ulster fullback Michael Lowry scored two tries as Ireland condemned 12-man Italy to a 100th Six Nations defeat in Dublin.

The hosts played with a two-man advantage for 60 minutes after Italian replacement hooker Hame Faiva was sent off midway through the first half.

His dismissal led to uncontested scrums, which forced Italy to take off another player and play the rest of the game with only 13 men.

And the visitors finished the game with 12 men after Braam Steyn’s late yellow card for a deliberate knock on.
