Ireland 13 Australia 10 Rugby LIVE SCORE: Byrne hands hosts late lead in injury-plagued second half – at the latest

IRELAND meets Australia in the final round of the Autumn Internationals and the action is on.

There was an early blow to Ireland, seeing Jonny Sexton strain his calf in the warm-up and being forced to drop out of the squad, with Jack Crowley replacing him.

Australia have since ruled out an early attempt for a neck roll as Ireland took the lead through Sexton’s replacement.

But the first half was a dull affair as the hosts received a boost when Australia received a yellow card towards the end of the half.

We have all the news from the second period as injuries delayed the game.

  • Irish eyes focused on cutlery

    Being ranked number one in the world is an honor in itself.

    It matters little if a team can’t capitalize on that dominance to ensure they do it on the biggest stage.

    With the Six Nations ahead of Ireland, it will serve as the perfect warm-up program for the World Cup in France.

    Andy Farrell’s side will also have a chance to take on France, who many believe will win the tournament on home soil.

  • That’s why we’re number one

    Ireland have shown on many occasions they have a lot of attacking flair but tonight was a different kind of competition.

    It was more of an arm wrestling between these two heavyweights.

    The Irish had to dig deep today and did what it took to secure victory.
