Ireland out-muscle dismal Wales

Ireland inflicted Wales' first away Six Nations defeat since 2011 with a comprehensive 26-3 dismantling of the defending champions in Dublin.

The outstanding Jonny Sexton kicked two early penalties and then converted a Chris Henry try as the hosts led 13-0 at the interval.

Sexton's third penalty extended the lead before Leigh Halfpenny finally got Wales on the board in the 56th minute.

But another Sexton penalty and Paddy Jackson's late try sealed victory.
