Peter O'Mahony of Ireland wins a lineout during the RBS Six Nations Rugby Championship match between Ireland and England.What times does Ireland vs Italy kick off?

Ireland are making light work of Italy at the Aviva Stadium this afternoon, leading 42-0.

That particular encounter will not be for the faint hearted, but after Jonathan Sexton's dramatic late drop-goal sealed a famous 15-13 in Paris seven days earlier, this was a relative stroll in the park, even if Ireland did concede three tries.

Our friends at Rugby World have guides to the Ireland Six Nations squad and Italy Six Nations squad waiting for you.

Ireland secured a bonus point in running in eight tries to outclass hapless Italy 56-19 in their Six Nations clash at Lansdowne Road on Saturday.

Ireland made their intent clear early on as Johnny Sexton went for touch instead of the posts, but the Italians managed to hold Conor Murray up as he crossed the line.


Henshaw was hurt in the act of scoring his second try as Ireland ran out 56-19 winners in Dublin to maintain their flawless start to the tournament.

New Zealand-born centre Bundee Aki scored one of the quartet - his first for his adopted country - and set up Keith Earls for the fourth one.

The Leinster back left the field with his injured right arm in a sling, but head coach Joe Schmidt is holding on to hope Henshaw may have avoided serious injury. He was then withdrawn along with Murray and things began to get a little more sloppy.

However, with the game long gone the Italians found some spark and Tommaso Castello got the better of Dan Leavy to release Tommaso Allan with the fly-half going over and converting his try to put Italy on the scoreboard with just over 20 minutes to go.

Yet Ireland hit straight back when Jacob Stockdale scored before Italy's replacement scrum-half Eduardo Gori went over for the visitors' second.
