  • It's all positive for Ireland heading into a World Cup year - their victory over the United States this evening has capped off an outstanding 2018 that yielded 12 international victories from 13 matches.  On the other side of the ledger, the United States showed plenty in the first half this evening to show that they will be a handful in Japan next year.
    '
  • FULL TIME - The final whistle sounds at Aviva Stadium!  The match was well in the balance at half time following an impressive first half from the United States.  The Eagles ran out of legs however and it was all Ireland after the break - the hosts ran in five unanswered tries in the second half to record a comprehensive 57-14 victory.
