A selection of the “keyboard warrior” reactions after the full-time whistle of our featured matches of the weekend.

If you can hang on and claw victory from a near certain defeat in the face of blatant disregard for player safety and officiating ineptitude ... you've got a RWC trophy in your sights. Wonderful year for us all ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿพ

Our wins show that damage over time beats burst damage
(comparison for gamers only)

Ronan McManus

Rode our luck but a win is a win.Brilliant series win.

John O Reilly

Stone the crows! They bloody did it!

Martin Loughrey

Rode our luck a bit but my god that will stand to them in Japan. Almost all of the squad used. Byrne will get a game or 2 in November so won't worry about him. Larmours take against Folau was epic. Beirne did well after coming on. Scanell, CJ and Aki were brilliant. Come on ireland.

Colm Cunningham

Larmour and Beirne coming on had desired effect, more pace and better hands

Tom Ruane

Take a moment to enjoy that year. Wow. Hope we haven’t peaked too soon but this is just phenomenal.

Derek Tormey

Israel Folau tugging another man from behind. I thought he was opposed to that kind of carry-on ๐Ÿค”

PS: Amazing season. What else can you say?

Derek McGee

Me nerves. What a match. Great character. Jeez Sexton makes me nervous. He missed the feckin conversion! Then he kicks to win.
We got some calls. Oz indisciplined. What a season! Happy hols!

Conor Elliott

Fantastic match and test series haven't seen a better one in the past few years welldone to Ireland on winning their first ever series in the southern hemisphere also Australia for making it a series to remmber ๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ†

Chris Toole

Reply : First 3 test win, first of any type since 1979.

Concerned about the scrum and how long it takes us to score, particularly score tries. But we managed to find a way to win regardless.

Dรณnal Foley

Breathtaking test match. Great result ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‰

Sandra Dawson

Fantastic win. Awful ref. 55 all on aggregate shows how closely matched the teams were but it came down to our mental strength and determination. So many stand out performers, tough on Byrne but his day will come. CJ had a stormer and Sexton was immense again, missed conversion aside. Loved his signal to the lads that the game was over ๐Ÿ’š

Michelle Tobin

We are mastering the art of winning when under the cosh. Thought our forwards did well considering they conceded nearly 3Kg per man. What won us the series is sheer bloody hard work and passion. Joe and his team have installed an unbelievable work ethic and togetherness in the camp, long may it continue

Sean Michaels

A hard earned win today, a well earned series win.. combination of skill discipline commitment and resilience has seen us with smiles on our faces today. Capping a great season. We are lucky to have this group of players and coaches.

Wayne O'Brien

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
