Ulster players Tommy Bowe and Jared Payne reflect on Ireland's 26-3 win over Italy in their first match of this year's Six Nations series.
Wing Bowe was making his first appearance in the competition since 2012, while Payne was playing in the Six Nations for the first time.
Both players emphasise how difficult the Italians were to break down in Rome, but express their satisfaction that the Irish have begun the defence of their title with a victory.
