There were a few other talking points in today’s clash in Cardiff which got fans talking.

Peter O’Mahoney was shown a red card for this ‘reckless’ clear-out challenge that was deemed to be to the head of a Wales player. With this sending off occurring in just the 13th minute of play – it certainly put Ireland on the back foot for the rest of the encounter.

Ireland didn’t give up the fight though and managed to finish the half strongly after this score from second-rower, Tadgh Beirne.

The extra man started to pay off for the men in red as the second half wore on. George North battered his way through the Irish line to record his 42nd try for Wales.

It was Louis Rees-Zammit who sealed the win for Wales,however, with this brilliant finish to score in the corner for Wayne Pivac’s side.
