Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
From the restart it was all Ireland. Martin McPhail scored a try after seven minutes and three minutes later, Hartigan scored his second. Brian O'Riordan and Rory Best added their names to the scoresheet before Hickey capped a marvelous performance when he converted his own try in the final minute of the game.
In a game played earlier, Australia defeated Romania 135-0, the second time in successive games that the Romanians have conceded 135 points. On Friday next Ireland play hosts South Africa in Ellis Park Stadium.
