Ireland Get Ready For 6 Nations Clash With Italy

O'Shea's final game in an Ireland shirt was the 50-18 defeat by England in 2000

A sensational opening round will be a tough act to follow, but you can rest assured, the Natwest Six Nations will show no signs of relenting in Round 2 with some fierce action set to unfold.

"He's a lot more conformable now which is promising but what's not promising is the degree of discomfort he was in", coach Joe Schmidt told a news conference, saying Henshaw could potentially miss the championship and that Ireland will know for sure on Sunday.

Ireland were last crowned Six Nations champions in 2015 and they were facing an Italy side who have now lost 13 of their last 14 Tests. Ireland were the only team in the tournament that failed to score a try last weekend, and needed a long-distance drop-goal from Johnny Sexton to snatch victory.

Quaglio, after three appearances off the bench, comes in for Andrea Lovotti while Steyn replaces youngster Renato Giammarioli in a strengthening of the scrum.

Henshaw was hurt in the act of scoring his second try as Ireland ran out 56-19 winners in Dublin to maintain their ideal start to the tournament.

The Italians were left shell-shocked when Bundee Aki crashed over to mark the 27-year-old New Zealand-born centre's first try for his adopted country leaving the Irish just one try short of their bonus point aim with only 20 minutes gone.

Ireland will anxiously await an update on the fitness of Robbie Henshaw after the centre suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder in the Six Nations win over Italy.

Aki then turned creator as he made a terrific break to set up Keith Earls to go over to seal the bonus point and Sexton converted to send the Irish in 28-0 up at the break.

But slack defending saw Allan and Gori run from deep to score with Italy's best try coming when full-back Minozzi touched down in the corner.
