WATCH: Highlights of Ireland’s hard fought win over Australia last night

The Irish women’s rugby team got off to the good start last night as they beat the ‘Wallaroos’ 19-17.

A very tight first half, where the Irish had to do a lot of defending, luckily ended 7-5 in favour of Tom Tierney’s team.

The second half opened up a lot more and both Ireland and Australia traded scores, including UL Bohs player Ciara Griffin dotting down for Irelands first second half try.

The Irish bench would again prove influential as Sophie Spence came on and scored the Women’s third try and in the end it was enough to claim the four points and it was nothing less than they deserved after such a strong second half performance.
