Ireland has made history by beating an injury-ravaged Wallabies in their third straight loss by 13-10 this morning.

The Australians gave their best and opted to go for a match-winning try in the 78th minute, but they penalised themselves for a technical offence as they tried to maul the ball.

The Australians' discipline again proved costly, denying them a third-minute try after replacement hooker Folau Fainga'a was yellow-carded for a neck roll late in the first half after repeated team warnings about the foul play by referee Ben O'Keeffe.

Ireland lost veteran skipper and playmaker Johnny Sexton to a calf injury in the warm-up with Jack Crowley starting, but the Wallabies' 2022 horror injury toll continued to mount with prop Taniela Tupou was assisted off the field in a medi-cab after suffering a second-half leg injury.

The Wallabies have now lost three tests in a row against France, Italy and Ireland to pile the pressure on coach Dave Rennie.
