Ireland well below their best against Wallabies

The Wallabies surprised a lot of people when they knocked off World Number 2 Ireland on the weekend at Suncorp Stadium, and the 18-9 victory was no fluke according to Fairfax rugby union journalist Tom Decent.

“It was probably one of the better Wallabies wins sice the world cup you’d think,” he said on Nights with Julian King.

That said, the Irish were disappointing, and didn’t manage to get across the tryline in the 80 minutes.

“I felt they lacked a bit of spark in attack and creativity. I don’t things went as well as they thought it would, particularly in attack.”

The Irish get their chance to bounce back in Game 2 this Satirday at Melbourne’s AAMI Park.
