IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
See below for the views of Ireland flanker Neil Best after he secured the Guinness man-of-the-match award for his part in the 21-6 defeat of Australia.
- ON THAT TACKLE ON LOTE TUQIRI -
"It's nice to beat people when they run into your channel. Against South Africa last week it was frustrating because I didn't get any hits in. That's the part of the game I really enjoy and it didn't happen for me against South Africa. I'm glad I got a few in against the Australians."
- ON THE MAN-OF-THE-MATCH AWARD -
"I hope I've got better games ahead of me. I'd like to get better and better every time I wear an Ireland jersey. Everybody is working hard for each other so anyone could have won the man-of-the-match award."
- ON THE WIN -
"This is a good victory for us regardless of the conditions. We played well in the first half, although we didn't quite match it in the second half. It was good to have that points cushion but there are still things to work on. Beating two Southern Hemisphere teams over two weekends is very good.
"We were the favourites for both games and I'm glad we won both of them."
