Though it did not happen for them in the Six Nations, one Welsh side did manage a victory over an Irish team on Saturday. Scarlets hammered Ulster 34-10.
It was a bonus-point victory for Scarlets. Their fourth try came via an Irishman in a red jersey: Tadhg Beirne. Joe Schmidt's decision to not include Beirne in his Six Nations plans has been to the benefit of Scarlets.
Beirne was immense on Saturday - as he has been all season - putting in a Man of the Match performance against Ulster. Just over four minutes from the final whistle, Beirne touched down for the bonus point.
It came via an incredible show of strength from the Munster-bound second row as he both tackled Ulster back row Nick Timoney and ripped the ball from his grasp to score the try.
No doubt Munster fans are relishing the thought of seeing the European Player of the Year nominee in their red jersey rather than that of Scarlets.
