Comfortable win for Ireland over South Africa

Comfortable win for Ireland over South Africa

The Springboks' loosehead, Coenraad Oosthuizen, only lasted one minute after he suffered a serious looking leg injury when tackled by Bundee Aki.

Ireland had the better of the early exchanges and it showed on the scoreboard as they were 9-0 up midway through the half thanks to two further penalties from Sexton.

Ireland's dominance at the scrum - with a rejuvenated Cian Healy making his mark in a rare big-game start - continued and the home side began to find more room out wide while easily stifling any counter-attacks with a high defensive line.

After three penalties from the boot of Sexton, Ireland crossed the whitewash when Andrew Conway collected Conor Murray's box kick to sprint down the tramlines to touch down.

A woeful first half for the South Africans was summed up just before the break when, closing in on the Irish line, flanker Siya Kolisi's attempt to find a teammate drifted forward and out of play.

The 38-3 crushing was the first time Ireland had worn the new strip, and they are unlikely to need it again in the rest of their autumn internationals.

But that was as good as it got for the Boks - Sexton restoring the 14-point advantage with a penalty of his own on 56 minutes.

In what can only be described as a "yoink", Conway was in and out with the ball before South Africa had time to react.
