Irish warm up for Aust with Georgia win

Posted on 01/31/2019 | in 深圳桑拿网 | by

Fullback Felix Jones scored two of Ireland’s seven tries as the Six Nations champions got over a poor first-half to coast to a 49-7 victory over Georgia at Lansdowne Road on Sunday for their sixth successive win.

Five-eighth Ian Madigan contributed 19 points for an Ireland side – which had 13 changes to the starting line-up from the one that beat the South Africans last weekend – against a resilient Georgian side that was let down by ill discipline and saw two players sin-binned.

The Irish – who face the Wallabies in their final November Test next Saturday – will move above England in the world rankings.

“Fair dues to them they really got at us,” said Jones.

“However, this win still gives us some momentum ahead of Australia.”

Ian Madigan slotted three first-half penalties for the hosts to take a 9-0 lead into the break, before they ran riot in the second half.

For all their courage Georgia had no answers early on in the second-half as prop Dave Kilcoyne was unstoppable in running in from short range to score, while South Africa-born hooker Richardt Strauss followed suit soon after.

After Georgia hit back through a converted try to lock Giorgi Nemsadze which narrowed the scores to 23-7, Ireland crossed again through Simon Zebo after Dimitri Basilaia was sin-binned on the hour mark.

The Irish finished strongly having rung the changes with a whole swathe of replacements, one of them Stuart Olding feeding Jones for his first try in the right hand corner and then the fullback scored his second in the other after a great break by Kieran Marmion, before Olding scored one of his own to complete the rout.
