Ireland 47-5 Samoa: Joe Schmidt and Rory Best look ahead to quarter-finals


Ireland Rugby coach Joe Schmidt and captain Rory Best react to their side's 47-5 victory over Samoa, which secured a place in the World Cup quarter-finals. A bonus-point victory in Fukuoka sealed a safe passage to the last eight, whatever happens in Japan and Scotland's typhoon-threatened encounter on Sunday. The victory moved them top of Pool A and booked a last-eight clash against either New Zealand or South Africa, thanks to two tries from Sexton and scores for Rory Best, Tadhg Furlong, Jordan Larmour, CJ Stander and Andrew Conway.
