Australian Coach Rodney Eade
Australia manager Rodney Eade had no excuses today after his side's 50-29 second Test defeat to Ireland at the Metricon Stadium.
Eade admitted that his team were outclassed by Anthony Tohill's men over both Tests, scoring a 130-65 aggregate win, to deservedly clinch the Cormac McAnallen Cup.
"I would like to say well done to the Irish, they were fantastic," said Eade afterwards.
"They thoroughly deserved it. They were very professional - and professional to me is not measured in money. It's the way they went about it and the application and I thought they were outstanding.
"It was probably one of the best squads they've picked and we need to come up to that level next time."
