Ireland opened the scoring in the sixth-minute with a try from centre Gary Foley, which was converted by out-half Ian Madigan..

The Irish went further ahead through scores from wingers Ronan O'Mahony and Mark Atkinson, with Madigan tacking on the conversion to Atkinson's 25th-minute try. Peter Melia's youngsters led 19-0 at half-time.

Italy upped their performance in the second half and limited Ireland to only one score - a penalty from the boot of replacement Andrew Burke. Italy scored a late consolation try through number eight Luca Petillo to make the final score 22-5 in Ireland's favour.
