Kidney glad of first Irish victory

Ireland coach Declan Kidney says their first victory of the 2012 Six Nations could have been better despite a comfortable 42-10 win over Italy at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Ireland ran in five tries - including two from winger Tommy Bowe - in their first match in nearly three weeks due to their postponed clash with France.

Kidney says his side struggled in the first half against a well-organised opposition, but is pleased at getting their first points of the tournament.
