Trimble’s Ulster team mate Tommy Bowe tries to break past Wallaby scrum-half and captain George Gregan, who was earning a world record 117th cap at Lansdowne Road.

Ireland full-back Geordan Murphy chips through past Australian fly-half Mat Giteau, who kicked three conversion and three penalties in the 16-point victory.

An early skirmish saw Australian debutant prop David Fitter (centre) become entangled with Ronan O’Gara.
