Ireland coach Joe Schmidt is impressed by debutant hooker Niall Scannell's display as the visitors earn their biggest ever Six Nations win by thumping Italy 63-10 in Rome.
Munster's Scannell, 24, was a late call-up to the Ireland team after captain Rory Best was ruled out of the game by a stomach bug.
