Earls and head coach Joe Schmidt have been speaking to the media ahead of Ireland’s first test with Australia.
The Limerick man has been playing under captain Peter O’Mahony at provincial level for some time and says that the Cork man leads by his actions on the pitch.
“He speaks well during training, he gets his messages across but I think his main thing is going to be his actions. From kick off, he’s going to go, and go for as far and as long as he can and fellas get in behind him because that’s what your captain to do, to lead by example and there’s no better man.”
Earls also gives his thoughts on Carbery starting at 10 in the video by Irish Rugby TV below.
