Ireland player ratings v Australia

Rob Kearney - 6
Never put a foot wrong in a remarkably solid display from a player who has hardly played over the last year.
Tommy Bowe - 6
Should have completed his run to the line after intercepting a loose pass. Looking back was fatal.
Andrew Trimble - 5
Had little chance to shine.

Ireland have produced the shock of the World Cup so far by beating Australia 15-6 in Auckland this morning.
