Ireland vs Samoa
11:45am Saturday 12th October

Tadhg Furlong and rory Best scored tries in the opening nine minutes, with fly-half Johnny Sexton crossing twice to bag the bonus stage prior to half-time.
Ireland played with 52 minutes after Aki was red-carded for a dangerous tackle on Samoa fly-half UJ Seuteni.
But attempts from CJ Stander Jordan Larmour and Andrew Conway ensured the win shut Joe Schmidts men a quarter-final against New Zealand or South Africa and was never under threat.
