Ireland are edged out by Wales
29 Aug 2015 20:08
Ireland 10-16 Wales
-
An odd afternoon at the Aviva Stadium saw Wales beat Ireland by 16-10 in an oddity of a match that will have given both coaches food for thought as they finalise their Rugby World Cup 2015 squads.
-
A converted try by Justin Tipuric and three penalites from Leigh Halfpenny proved enough to eclipse a try by Iain Henderson and a Jonathan Sexton penalty.
-
For Ireland, eye-catching performances by Iain Henderson and Robbie Henshaw were the positives with Henderson in particular making a strong case that he should start the big matches in the second row alongside captain Paul O’Connell.
-
On the negative side of the ledger, Ireland lost Richardt Strauss and Keith Earls to injury. Earls will be particular cause for concern as he was stretchered off after a lengthy stoppage.
