Ireland ease to victory

Clark McAllister scored twice as Ireland defeated Belgium 34-0 at Carlisle Grounds in Bray on Saturday.

James Kelly opened the scoring for the Wolfhounds but failed to convert his own try before Ireland captain Casey Dunne crossed.

Kelly converted that effort but missed from the tee after McAllister's first try of the game. Anthony Leifi's score then put the hosts 18-0 up at half-time.

After the break, McAllister added his second with Kelly adding the extras before Rob Armstrong went over in the corner.

Kelly again missed the conversion but it was of little consequence as Belgium were unable to break the Irish line, with the hosts finishing off with a try by prop Curtis Stewart, which Kelly converted.
