Ireland 15-10 South Africa

Ireland completed their November internationals games with a 15-10 triumph over South Africa played against a weird backdrop of heavy fog that added to the intensity of the game.

Apart from a brisk Schalk Burger's 16th-minute try and a late assault by prop Tendai Mtawarira, South Africa offered little in attack and made plenty of poor discipline which allowed for sexton to punish each time.The result completed an unbeaten year for Ireland, a sequence spanning 10 matches that has landed Declan Kidney the international Rugby Board coach of the year award.

This was a game that Ireland made less mistakes in helping them add penalty points to the scoreboard but not a try. Well played Ireland.
