TRY for Wales!

Wales spread it wide the other direction, where Navidi draws the last defender before feeding Shingler, who has an easy run in in the corner. Well scored try, started off by Biggar doing what he does best, recovering a box kick.

Halfpenny doesn't have Sexton's kicking jitters, and converts from the touchline. Seven points in it, and this one's not over yet...

66' George North and Gareth Anscombe are on for Williams and Biggar. Statement of attacking intent, bringing Anscombe on I think. Ireland have the ball on the Welsh 10m line. Obviously.

67' North trying to kick through, but he can't quite get hold of it, and the ball goes into touch. He looks hungry for the ball. Always ominous if you're facing him.

68' Ireland have got their maul moving again, and have the ball 25m from the Welsh line. Defence holding firm so far...

68' Ball stolen by Williams! But illegally, says Jackson, and Sexton will have the chance to put his team two scores ahead. No, he's gone for the quick tap!

69' Ireland are almost over in the corner, but some good defence and a rare Irish knock on give Wales a scrum. Murray looks in quite a bit of pain on the ground...

The physio's magic sponge does the trick for Murray. He's been fantastic for Ireland today.

71' Gareth Davies buys Wales some space, and they spread it wide before kicking ahead. Fantastic chase puts Kearney under pressure, and Ireland knock on trying to offload! Wales scrum on the Irish 10m line. The momentum seems to be shifting somewhat...
