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.  


Introducing a new feature you'll be seeing more of down the line...the eight-oh-review summing up a match in exactly 80 words and published within 80 minutes of full-time.  Feel free to send me your own attempts if you feel inspired, will be happy to publish!
