Ryan Pleased With ‘How We Regrouped At Half-Time’

Ireland captain James Ryan was pleased with how the team reacted at half-time and delivered a better second half performance in a 'tough Test match'.

Tries from Chris Farrell, Stuart McCloskey, Finlay Bealham, Josh van der Flier and Jacob Stockdale helped to steer the hosts to a 39-31 win. Returning out-half Joey Carbery kicked 14 points.

The Vodafone Summer Series opener had 3,000 supporters present at the Aviva Stadium, as part of a test pilot programme for the safe return of supporters to outdoor sporting events.
