Summary

Time Score  
5 0 - 3

Jackson puts Ireland ahead with a well struck penalty from just outside the 22

13 3 - 3

Easy penalty for Orquera from the left of the sticks - it's all square at the Olimpico

21 6 - 3

More ill-discipline from Orquera as he makes up for his missed penalty to put Italy ahead

35 9 - 3

Great effort from Garcia and Italy are smelling blood here

40+1 9 - 6

Despite Kearney perhaps committing an offence worthy of swapping the penalty around, Wayne Barnes allows Jackson to go for the posts and the difference is just three points

48 14 - 6

After numerous phases, Venditti eventually gets over the tryline. Barnes goes to the TMO and asks 'is there any reason why I cannot award the try' - there isn't and Italy have the first score of the game

49 16 - 6

Really impressive conversion from Orquera from the right of the sticks

51

Parisse sees yellow for a trip on Madigan

52 16 - 9

Jackson slots the penalty and it is Italy 16-9 Ireland

57 16 - 12

Jackson punishes Furno's ill discipline and it's a four-point game

63 16 - 15

Jackson cuts the deficit to just a point - he has been nerveless today

68

That was poor from Ryan - he catches an Italian with a late hit for no apparent reason

69 19 - 15

Orquera is the toast of the Olimpico as he punishes Ryan's petulance to give Italy a four-point lead.

79

More ill-discipline as Murray sees yellow for a trip.

80 22 - 15

Orquera slots the penalty to rub salts into wounds of the Irish.
