Five moments that mattered

The key moments from the Six Nations match between Ireland and Wales in Dublin, according to SIMON BORCHARDT.

27th minute – Andrew Trimble takes a pass from Rob Kearney on the edge of Wales' 22, and beats five defenders before being tackled just short of the line by Alex Cuthbert.

33rd minute – Ireland win a lineout inside Wales' 22 and set up a driving maul, from which Chris Henry scores. The converted try gives Ireland a 13-0 lead.

57th minute – Martin Moore is penalised at a scrum and Leigh Halfpenny finally gets Wales on the board. Unfortunately for the visitors, Jonathan Sexton cancels it out soon after.

66th minute – Wales are on the attack inside Ireland's 22 but after several phases Rhodri Jones is penalised for a double movement.

78th minute – Ireland win a lineout and again set up the driving maul. The ball comes to Conor Murray who sends it out to his backs and Paddy Jackson glides through the defence to score a try that wraps up a convincing 26-3 win.
