53' This scrum isn't much fun. We're on to our third reset so far.

54' Superb tackle by Halfpenny with Ireland sniffing the tryline. But Ireland are over. TRY for Ireland!

Healy muscled his way over in the corner, and that's the bonus point. Wales aren't playing badly, but Ireland are devastatingly good today.

Another dodgy kick by Sexton. That one looked like it was going wide on the left, but went wide right instead. Weird, wobbly one.

57' Wales have a new front row, and it will be put to the test in a scrum for an Irish knock on just inside the Irish 10m line. Wales need to score next, and soon. Can they take advantage of a rare bit of possession.

Ireland have had 79% possession so far. Absolutely insane. Never seen anything like it!

58' And they've stolen the ball again! Kick ahead for Earls to chase, ooh and he's SO nearly there for the try. If the bounce had been better, that'd be another five points.

59' Wales extraordinarily lucky there, losing their own lineout to cheaply give away possession, but Ireland knock it on. Possibly in surprise.

61' Wales are looking a bit better with the ball in hand now, up inside the Irish 10m line. But they've knocked it on. Argh.

62' Ireland play through their advantage,and kick clear. Halfpenny does superbly to keep the ball in play their, taking the high ball. No idea how he managed that. Davies' turn for a box kick, and it's collected by Biggar. Long pass wide and Stef Evans has space!
