Wales emerged from the changing rooms long before Ireland and went through a series of warm-up drills.
Lindsay Peat was the first Irish player across the line in the 5 point win, she touched down in the first half off a rolling maul, Nora Stapleton kicked the conversion.
Rob Kearney was another injury concern but he has been declared fully fit.
With victories over Scotland, France and Italy Reilly and her colleagues hand reason to go into today's game in confident mood.
The Welsh squad have admitted to being wary of Sexton and his halfback partner, Conor Murray, who may be the best halves partnership in the Six Nations.
However, the former scrum-half has opted to name an identical matchday 23 to the one that lost 29-13 at Murrayfield last time out. The Welsh put in one or two nice passages, but overall it was a poor performance.
Jack Kelly, Colm Hogan and Charlie Connolly of Dublin University Football Club (DUFC) all represented Ireland under 20s in their encounter with Wales in the penultimate round of the Under 20 Six Nations Championship.
Wales have not been defeated in successive matches at the Principality Stadium in the same Championship season since 2003.
Individually, t here are some intriguing contests to look out for, especially in terms of Lions selection. Jones wanted no further slip-ups.
Wales ended an entertaining half in the ascendancy, however, a Webb chip to the corner gathered by Liam Williams who fed inside only for Davies to be held up.
The architect of both his tries, however, was Rhys Webb.
Ireland have the superior front row, while Alun Wyn Jones dominated the much vaunted Gray brothers in the Test against Scotland.
Captain Sam Warburton produced an excellent display to quell Ireland's attacking pressure and ensured that the marauding CJ Stander was ineffective throughout. Sean O'Brien is ahead of Justin Tipuric, though only just.
But Ireland's games with Wales are notoriously close, and it would be a courageous person to rule out a Welsh team, albeit misfiring, playing at home with pressure on to assure a top-eight World Rugby ranking for the draw for the 2019 World Cup and also to shine in a bid to help guarantee spots on the British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand in the summer.
Wales tackled their hearts out but Ireland were guilty of white-line fever, with players opting to pick and drive while team-mates waited in oceans of space out wide.
Wales face Ireland in Cardiff this Friday 10 March, in the only night-time kick-off of the 2017 Six Nations.
