Ireland Autumn Internationals 2014
Ireland made it a clean-sweep in the 2014 Guinness Autumn International series – with impressive victories over South Africa, Georgia and Australia. The opening two victories meant that Ireland leapfrogged Australia into 3rd place in the IRB rankings, before actually beating the Wallabies in the final match of the Guinness Autumn series. The only regret that Ireland will have is that they didn't have a fixture against New Zealand. The Irish would surely have fancied their chances of beating the All Blacks.
