Ireland Square Their Rugby Series Against Australia!


Ireland have squared their rugby series against Australia. Andrew Conway and Tadhg Furlong scored the tries and Johnny Sexton kicked 16-points as Joe Schmidt’s side beat the Wallabies 26-21 in Melbourne.

It’s Ireland’s first win in Australia since 1979 and ensures the three game series will be decided in Sydney next weekend. Munster-bound forward Tadhg Beirne came off the bench to win his first cap.

Ireland were 16-14 up at half-time in their second test against the Aussies in Melbourne. Joe Schmidt’s side bounced back from conceeding a second minute Kurtley Beale try with Munster’s Andrew Conway going over in the corner in the seventh minute.

Ireland captain Johnny Sexton converted Conway’s try and also kicked three penalties. The Wallabies got a penalty try in the 26th minute with Cian Healy also sent to the sin bin.
