Wallabies' behind-the-scenes work bears fruit against Irish

  Wallabies' behind-the-scenes work bears fruit against Irish Saturday night's win in Brisbane showed the benefits of the collaboration between Michael Cheika's team and the state sides over the past year.Despite the kerfuffle over the non-rested Brumbies players last weekend, the shift of Nathan Grey and Stephen Larkham into full-time roles were evident in Brisbane, where the Wallabies’ defence was well prepared and the wide attack really stressed Ireland throughout the game.

"I think I heard them say stuff on the speaker and everyone was clapping but I had no idea," said Kerr, who had not even heard of the previous record holder and was born three years after Clark made her score.
