Nine-try Ireland account for USA
A rampant Ireland scored nine tries in a comprehensive 55-19 victory over the United States in New Jersey.
Ireland kicked off their tour in style Saturday thanks to Keith Earls’ first-half double at Red Bull Arena.
Debutants Jacob Stockdale and James Ryan ran in tries in a youthful side, while Niall Scannell, Kieran Marmion, Jack Conan, Luke McGrath and Simon Zebo were also on the scoresheet for Ireland, who led 29-7 at half-time.

Stockdale capped his international bow with a try as he raced through to score and Garry Ringrose added the extras for a 12-0 lead.
Earls was at it again, while Scannell and Marmion all crossed over before the interval after Nick Civetta gave the Americans something to cheer about.
Civetta blocked down a Carbery chip to claim an easy five-pointer in front of the posts.
The result, however, was never in doubt as Conan, McGrath, Ryan and Zebo crossed over.
