Great atmosphere, great to be there!

The game however wasn’t all it could’ve been. Game management was lacking, kicks for touch not getting any distance. Defence was good on the first half, that’s a real positive. No one really making yards or running decent lines from my pov. Is it that we were missing Johnny? Or were the rest of the team not ready to step up in his absence?


RichardMifsud One for the purists in the Aviva tonight Happy with the W but the performance was way down on previous ones. D was good but our attacking shape wasn’t great and too many inaccuracies didn’t allow us to create pressure .Good learning for the young lads Ross B with a serious pair to kick that one over. Crowley had a good outing. Big Joe Mc with some minutes under his belt. Respect to the Wallabies 🙌🏻 #IREvAUS

The2ndrow Well that match happened

OZ will be kicking themselves they didn’t win that

They had chances but we were able to hold them out

We lacked accuracy which led to a lack of discipline & we invited OZ onto us

The How to beat Ireland blueprint is there just make a mess of the breakdown

No clean ball have JGP and moreso Crowley a tough time. That said Crowley did well enough & thats perfectly fine in a first cap like that

Doris at times looked like he was literally dragging Ireland to that win

David Cahill Well I’m off to buy some lotto tickets coz the luck is with us right now

Kevin “The Spiddal Kid”  It’s games like that which help to build the mental resistance you need in a tight game when you’re tired and need to go to the well one more time to get the result. 

For the less experienced players who got game time today that will do them well to be able to draw upon that experience in future.
