Rob Kearney was ruthless in attackStar man Jonathan Sexton was the official Man of the Match, but full-back Rob Kearney proved a dangerous weapon in attack, running round a number of his Italian opponents to create opportunities for his team-mates.Room for improvementIreland travel to Paris knowing there is much to improve on, and though Keith Earls scored in the 17th minute and Bowe in the 39th, Ireland were frustrated that they could not convert more of their pressure into points in the first half. The game was largely played in Ireland’s half, prompting Declan Kidney to say: “There was a bit of wearing down that had to be done in the first 50 minutes, as there are in all Test matches.“We could probably have done a little more of that in their half rather than ours, but I can’t fault the boys for trying to play. “We had the courage to play, but what we need to do is get the balance right. That comes with playing together and the more time we spend together the better we’ll become.“But can’t go away thinking everything’s great just because we scored a few late tries.”In quotesIreland captain Paul O’Connell: “We have a lot of excellent and classy players and we took our tries well, which was satisfying. It was a good, patient performance. It’s great to get that result going to Paris, so we’re probably in a better place than we were the last time we went over.”Sergio Parisse runs in for Italy’s tryItaly coach Jacques Brunel: “We had two different teams out there. In the first half we tried to play and kept the score close. But in the second half it was completely different, we suffered beneath the Irish pressure and made many mistakes.”Match stat Veteran fly-half Ronan O’Gara came on in the 70th minute to win his 118th Ireland cap, and overtaking Brian O’Driscoll to become Ireland’s most-capped player.Click here to watch match highlightsIreland: Rob Kearney; Tommy Bowe, Keith Earls (Fergus McFadden 68), Gordon D’Arcy (Ronan O’Gara 70), Andrew Trimble; Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray (Eoin Reddan 54); Cian Healy (Tom Court 70), Rory Best (Sean Cronin 70), Mike Ross, Donncha O’Callaghan (Donncha Ryan 59), Paul O’Connell (capt), Stephen Ferris, Sean O’Brien (Peter O’Mahony 59), Jamie Heaslip.Tries (5): Earls, Bowe (2), Court, Trimble.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Captain Paul O’Connell competes at a lineoutBy Bea Asprey, Rugby World WriterIn a nutshell Having not played a match for three weeks, Ireland looked nervous as they came out of the Aviva Stadium blocks, but they exerted consistent pressure on their opponents and were rewarded with five tries. The hosts were penalised within kicking distance a number of times, but luckily for them it was not Italian fly-half Tobias Botes’s day with the boot. Man of the Match Jonathan Sexton, on the other hand, was successful with seven out of eight kicks at goal, notching up a total of 18 points.Key moment Centre Gordon D’Arcy’s break in the 13th minute was Ireland’s first assault on Italy’s line, and the men in green were relentless throughout the contest. Though Italy had their moment of glory, as Sergio Parisse scored under the posts five minutes before the half-time break, Ireland had the last laugh of the half thanks to a try from Tommy Bowe. Try: Parisse. Con: Botes. Pen: Botes.Referee: Craig Joubert

Transfers Tottenham will have to break wage structure to keep Kane – Les Ferdinand Ryan Benson Last updated 1 year ago 20:44 2/14/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Transfers Tottenham Hotspur Harry Kane Premier League UEFA Champions League The England striker’s form continues to attract interest from Europe’s biggest clubs after he impressed again in the Champions League Tottenham will have to break their wage structure in order to prevent Harry Kane from joining the likes of Real Madrid, according to former Spurs forward Les Ferdinand.Kane has developed into one of Europe’s elite strikers over the last few years, with his goalscoring feats helping to elevate Spurs to consistent challengers for Champions League qualification.The current campaign is the fourth in succession where Kane has managed to score more than 20 Premier League goals, with his tally of 23 in 26 appearances suggesting he is on track to beat his personal best of 29 from last term. Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But the main difference for Kane this season has been his emergence in the Champions League, with his strike against Juventus in Spurs’ impressive 2-2 draw on Tuesday taking him to seven in six games, just two shy of Cristiano Ronaldo.And Ferdinand – who held coaching roles at the club under Harry Redknapp, Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood – when asked whether Spurs will be able to keep Kane for much longer, told Omnisport ahead of the London Football Awards: “That’s the million dollar question.”I think they’ll have to break their wage structure and sometimes you get special talents that you have to break the wage structure for if you want to keep that player.”If Tottenham want to be competitive and continue to finish in the top four, then first and foremost they need to start winning things.”That’s the thing that’ll probably keep Harry because he’s a Tottenham supporter and he wants to see Tottenham win things.”So, if he could be part of that and earn what his quality deserves, when you look at what everyone else is earning, they’ve got a good chance of keeping him.”Ferdinand is also adamant that Kane is already among the very best strikers in Europe, suggesting only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is rivalling the England international in the Premier League at present.”If you look at strikers in the Premier League and Europe at the moment, you have to put Harry up there with best of them,” he said.”He’s got everything he needs for his game. He’s keeping free of injury which is a key thing, but left foot, right foot, headed goals – he scores all types.”If you look at the form guide, it’s probably Salah – who is on fire for Liverpool at the moment, scoring lots of goals – who is the only one that could probably rival Harry in the Premier League.”Ferdinand was speaking after the QPR in the Community Trust was nominated for the LFA’s Community Project of the Year award, after their work to host the ‘Game4Grenfell’ match in support of those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire last June.
