Ireland have kicked off the 2013 Six Nations with a compelling 30-22 victory over defending Grand Slam champions Wales at the Millennium Stadium.
Tries from Simon Zebo, Cian Healy and Brian O'Driscoll, backed by a strong kicking display from Jonathan Sexton, saw Ireland race to a 30-3 lead in Cardiff early in the second half.
Second half scores from Alex Cuthbert and Leigh Halfpenny threatened a Welsh revival, but the Irish held on to claim the opening win of the championship.
