Ireland will travel to Japan as the world's number one ranked side on the back of two wins over Wales after defeating Warren Gatland's side 19‑10.

Rob Kearney and Hadleigh Parkes traded first‑half tries before scores from Tadhg Furlong and James Ryan put the hosts in control after the break.

Welsh fly‑half Rhys Patchell was replaced in the first half after failing a Head Injury Assessment.

Injury also forced off Ireland's Cian Healy and Keith Earls in Dublin.
