Wales 22-30 Ireland: post-match reaction

Wales interim head coach Rob Howley says he is disappointed with the way his side started the game against Ireland after they lost 30-22 in the opening fixture of the Six Nations.

It was Ireland's 11th win in their past 14 visits to Cardiff, and head coach Declan Kidney admits his team were "fighting tooth and nail" to hold on to their lead in the second half.

Captain Jamie Heaslip describes his team's effort as "heroic" as they scored three tries against the reigning champions.
