See below for quotes from Ireland coach Eddie O'Sullivan after he watched his side close out the Guinness Autumn Series with an eight-try win over the Pacific Islanders.
- ON THE VICTORY -
"Overall I was happy with the team's performance. At times it got messy, but then we were playing against a side who like to play fast and loose.
"It would be hard to be as cohesive as we were in the last few weeks, because we made nine changes and had three new caps involved.
"We lost our shape after a good start. We needed to be directed, and once we did that, we had much better shape to our game. But the Islanders are big hitters and that makes life difficult for you."
- ON THE AUTUMN SERIES -
"I'm happy with the autumn series on the basis that we produced three good performances and three good wins. We got as much out of the autumn as we possibly could and overall I'm delighted with our performances.
"We started 26 players over the three games and brought in more as replacements, so we were able to look at some new guys as well.
"It was a good month's work and there is a lot of stuff in the bank that will stand us in good stead for the Six Nations in the spring."
- ON THE FINAL INTERNATIONAL AT THE OLD LANSDOWNE -
"It was certainly an emotional afternoon for everyone involved. The significance of what was happening really hit me when we arrived on the team bus.
"One of the officials who shakes the players' hands as they walk into the stadium mentioned it would be the last time he did it and at that point it really hit home for me.
"It was a good result. Over the years Lansdowne Road has been worth at least seven points to us because there has always been so much emotion between the ground, the team and the fans. This was a great way to finish things off."
- ON PADDY WALLACE'S PERFORMANCE -
"I thought Paddy had a super game at 10. It was a hard game to control, but he managed it. His kicking off the ground was excellent."
- ON DEBUTANTS LUKE FITZGERALD, STEPHEN FERRIS AND JAMIE HEASLIP -
"Luke did very well. The Islanders' backs are fast footballers. Luke did very well and dropped into full-back when Girvan Dempsey went off. He could have backed himself a bit more, if I wanted to be critical. He needs to pin his ears back and go.
"But it's still a learning curve for him, and he showed he's capable of playing Test rugby.
"Jamie and Stephen did well in a match that was brutal at times. They made some hard yards and defended well."
