Ireland got their Six Nations campaign off to the perfect start last night.

Andy Farrell's side ran in five tries in a record-breaking 38 points to 17 win over 14-man France in Marseille.

Head coach Farrell says his players dominated the game.

Ireland’s next opponents Italy welcome England to Rome in the first of this afternoon’s two fixtures.

That’s followed by the clash of Wales and Scotland, for which the Principality roof will be closed in Cardiff.

Half-an-hour down the road from Marseille, Ireland’s Under 20s begin their Six Nations campaign tonight.

Evan O’Connell captains the side as they take on their French counterparts in Aix-en-Provence from ten-past-8.

Last night Wales and England both started their campaigns with bonus point wins.
