Ireland ease to bonus point win over Romania in front of packed Wembley

Ireland ease to bonus point win over Romania in front of packed Wembley

Ireland scored six tries to beat Romania 44-10 in front of the record crowd at Wembley on Sunday. It was their second bonus point victory of the tournament so far, as they build towards what should be a tougher test against Italy, and then a Pool D decider against France.

Keith Earls and Tommy Bowe both scored twice as Ireland romped to another bonus point win, putting them one point ahead of France. While both sides look as though they should go through to the next round, the team that tops the group will avoid a Quarter Final meeting with likely Pool C leaders, New Zealand.

One down side, fullback Rob Kearney is under an injury cloud after picking up a gluteal strain. He will undergo a scan in Guildford today to see whether he is fit enough for the next match.

Ireland face Italy on Sunday, while Romania take on Canada on Tuesday.

Are you impressed with Ireland so far, or are we not really able to judge their form based on the opening two games? Let us know in the comments

    "Are you impressed with Ireland so far, or are we not really able to judge their form based on the opening two games?" I am impressed so far as they've done well to pile on the points and claim bonus points, however I am inclined to say that is where my appraisal ends. Ireland have had a lot of basic errors and been lucky enough to play against tier 2 teams that haven't been able to capitalise. That being said, when you play a team much better than you, you generally improve your standard, the same can be said vice versa. Perhaps the lower level has slightly compromised their game (unacceptable). The beauty is that they've had two 'easy' games to ease them into the tournament and they've still racked up some good points.
