Gatland: 'Exceptional' Ireland 'dominated us up front'

Warren Gatland said Wales' performance against Ireland on Saturday was "very disappointing", adding that the difference between the two sides was Ireland's domination up front.

Wales' 26-3 defeat in Dublin on Saturday was their first loss on the road in the Six Nations since they were beaten 28-9 in Paris three years.

It means the defending champions face an uphill struggle if they are to achieve a record three Six Nations titles in a row.
