Speaking after the win over the Baa Baas, Ireland’s interim head coach Michael Bradley said: “It was a good result and a good performance. We are very happy with the way the lads played.

“I thought all 22 players did well. There were some very good players in that Barbarians side.

“The point was made at half-time about going out and finishing the job, which is what we did,” added the Connacht supremo.
