Ireland XV 21-22 Barbarians (8-0-review)



Ulstermen got the Irish tries, Leinstermen made the dodgy challenges, Joe learned nothing ahead of RWC2015, Barbarians got the win in wet conditions.  The only highlights were a solo try from Kirchner and later an extraordinary drop-kick conversion from Madigan, though he and particularly Jack McGrath could be cited after giving Mikautadze punishment in a ruck.  A very un-BaaBaas contest - skipper Shane Jennings even chose to go for the posts for a pen but it ultimately proved the difference.
