The Ireland Under-19 team to face Australia Schools at Ravenhill this Saturday afternoon (kick-off 2.30pm) has been announced.
Ulster's Paddy Wallace was an easy winner of our latest poll, after his virtuoso display in Ireland's victory over the Pacific Islanders last weekend.
The Ballymena clubman, who was making his first start for Ireland, collected 26 points - a try, six conversions and three penalties - and ran the show at out-half in the 61-17 Guinness Autumn Series win at Lansdowne Road.
Wallace picked up the official Guinness man-of-the-match award in the final international at Lansdowne before the stadium's redevelopment, and he romped home in our poll, which asked you: "Who was your man-of-the-match against the Pacific Islanders?"
The 27-year-old Wallace, who now must be favourite to provide back-up at number 10 in Ireland's RBS 6 Nations squad, grabbed 69% of the vote - that is 1443 votes altogether. He was following in the footsteps of his Ulster team-mate Neil Best, who was voted IrishRugby.ie's man-of-the-match against Australia with a 62% share.
One of the try scorers against the Islanders, Shane Horgan finished second to Wallace on 15%, with try-scoring lock Paul O'Connell ranked third with 9%, debutant number eight Jamie Heaslip gaining 4% and flanker Simon Easterby, who bagged two tries, on 3%.
