Earls equals record as Ireland trounce Romania at World Cup

Keith Earls scored two tries to equal Brian O’Driscoll as Ireland’s leading try scorer in Rugby World Cups as they eased to a 44-10 victory over Romania at Wembley on Sunday.

The 27-year-old wing — who took his total to seven tries in the competition — saw fellow wing Tommy Bowe also score two tries with Rob Kearney and Chris Henry getting the others.

Ireland’s second successive easy victory — in front of a record World Cup crowd of 89, 267 — sets them up nicely for more challenging matches in Pool D against Italy and then France.
