Ireland are on course to retain their Home Internationals crown and make it four in a row after they dominated the singles to claim victory against Wales in their opening match at Moortown.
After the morning foursomes Ireland were behind 3-2 and required at least six points from the singles but a win for Wales’ Jack Davidson in the top match left Ireland in need of a big comeback.
The day began brightly as Conor O’Rourke and Paul McBride combined for an impressive 4&3 win while Rowan Lester and Alex Gleeson bagged the second point with a 3&2 success in match two while Wales claimed all three remaining matches to take a one-point lead into the afternoon.
But Robin Dawson, Rowan Lester, Caolan Rafferty, Alex Gleeson and Colin Fairweather all won their matches while Peter O’Keeffe and Conor Purcell claimed valuable halves to push Ireland over the winning line.
