ROB KEARNEY 8/10

Another classy outing. Not as dominant in the air as usual but very dangerous running ball back, and playing off their full-back should be a concerted attacking focus for Ireland.

TOMMY BOWE 7/10

After a few ropey moments against the Welsh, this was much more like it from Bowe. Ran fast and hard all afternoon, earning two more tries in the process.

DECLAN KIDNEY 8/10

Has been criticised for his use of the bench in the past but got it spot on here -- including widening his options for a hectic schedule by trying Sexton and Bowe in the centre.
