Ireland v Australia: How the players rated

Rob Kearney - 6
Mixed day with the boot, comfortable under the high ball but little counter attacking. Should have made a better attempt to stop Elsom from scoring
Tommy Bowe - 8
Pick of the Irish backs, scored a great try, was unlucky not to score a second and also looked to inject pace every time he got hold of the ball
Denis Leamy - 6
For Ferris (75 mins): Didn't have much time to make an impact but was still involved in both of Ireland's late drives, one of which led to O’Driscoll's crucial try

How each individual in the Irish team fared against Australia at Croke Park.
