I was at that 1976 match.
Aussies were a weak squad on that tour.
Ireland were the only team they beat on that Autumn tour.
Mark Loane their no. 8 had a mom field day against us.
1979 and something for J'S to use as motivation fodder next summer.
Typical of the childish attitude of the selectors at the time but that match damaged a few players test careers.
The Aussies conveniently omitted to mention Ireland's series win in their Centenary Video - begrudging f^ckers that they are.
Be bitter Ireland.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

Indeed. I coached down at Belvo taking minis for 7 years and he was always down chatting to the kids, presenting awards, giving us tips. I've spoken to Wardy over the years too as we've worked together on a few things and he's also a gent, couldn't do enough for you. Arguably 2 of our top 3 outhalves of all time and both appeared at the same time!
