Ireland captain Steven McDonnell expects his team to rise to the challenge and put in a vastly improved performance in the decisive International Rules second Test against Australia on Saturday.
The Irish have been roundly criticised for the quality of their display in the 47-40 defeat in Limerick last weekend.
"Both teams didn't play to their full potential and I feel there is a lot more in us. We went into the game a wee bit nervous and made simple mistakes," said McDonnell.
"Our ball handling wasn't very good and our kick passing was atrocious. That's not normal for the players that we have. Every single player is disappointed with the way we performed and we know we've things to put right.
"It was a disappointing performance for the calibre of players we have in our team. I've been looking back at the game - we didn't get stuck into them and they didn't get stuck into us."
