Can Ireland make it three from three in the autumn internationals against Australia? Join Cian Tracey for all the action from the Aviva Stadium as Joe Schmidt's men go head to head with the Wallabies.

My taxi driver, my barber and my wife all believe Joe Schmidt is the best coach in the world and Ireland will win the next Rugby World Cup. The nation is in a state of euphoria. I am not sure whether it is because of reduced water charges or the defeat of South Africa, but both are based on a false premise.
How did you sleep last night? Imagine if this was the first question your boss asked you when you arrived into work every morning. Imagine if your workload for the day was slightly modified based on the quality of your sleep the night before. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
We could be lonesome, oh so lonesome, after Tommy Walsh and Declan O'Sullivan, who retired this week. I'd rather remember the high catches and the greyhound-out-of -traps, off-the-mark, mad-for-the-ball dash of Tommy Walsh This Cat could lift the Titanic with a fly rod.
Relative to New Zealand and South Africa their resources are scarce, but there is something about Australia. Thirty times we've met and with one draw (in 2009) included, the win-loss ratio stands two to one in favour of the Wallabies. Nothing unusual about that I guess given we've only beaten the Springboks five times out of 50 shots at the Big Two.
