IRELAND kicked off their 2013 Six Nations with a thrilling 30-22 win over defending champions Wales at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
Declan Kidney’s men went into half-time 23-3 in the lead thanks to tries from Simon Zebo and Cian Healy.
After the break, the great Brian O’Driscoll put his team even further in front with a third Irish try.
Wales, however, fought back with tries from Alex Cuthbert, Leigh Halfpenny and Craig Mitchell, but great defensive work by Ireland saw them claim the two points in Cardiff.
