UCD number 8 James Culhane’s strong carrying earned him the PwC player-of-the-match as IQ Rugby starlet Chay Mullin touched down twice and Lansdowne’s Charlie Tector kicked 11 points.

Ireland’s attack was sharp in putting their chances away as Mullins, Matthew Devine and Mark Morrissey all scored first half tries punishing Welsh indiscipline.

It was 22-0 at half-time and could have been more. Crothers was held up and lively winger Mullins had a second effort ruled out for obstruction during the build-up.

The bonus point was safely tucked away early in the second half. Crothers, James McNabney, Mullins and James McCormick all crossed over the line by the hour mark with Wales suffering a second sin-binning.

Wales had a late consolation try from centre Ben Brownlee but the result was never in doubt.

Up next for Ireland is France away next week like their senior counterparts.
