Aki out for the first two November series games. No complaints, potential opportunities for Hume.

Saffa commentators saying the Irish are a big strong people...think they got Irish commentators script about SA and flipped the nationalities.

Shocking pass from Daly.

We look more dangerous but need to hold onto the ball.

About as encouraging a performance as you can ask for given the opposition. Game really suited us when it opened up. Think the halfbacks were excellent. Back three went really well, an absolute shocking pass from Daly aside. Lots to be happy about.

Great lineout steal from Tom Ahern, looked like it was his own lineout.

Managed the period with 13 very well with such a young team.

Such bitter commentary throwing in the odd platitude pretending to be sportsmanlike.

Sexton surviving that game is promising. Took some brutal hits when carrying to the line.

His defence was incredible too wasn't it. Actually McCloskey really complimented him in that area, rather they complimented each other. Both of them very keen to hold up the ball carrier and push him back the other side of the advantage line. Big fan of Aki but I hope they stick with McCloskey for the Australia game.
