Australia scored one of the great own goals in International Rules history
Surely this is enough reason to keep the series alive?

AUSTRALIA BEAT IRELAND 56-46 to win the 2014 International Rules Series and lift the Cormac McAnallen Cup in Perth this morning.

Ireland trailed 35-7 at half-time but launched a determined second-half comeback which fell just short.

The visitors’ goals came courtesy of Monaghan’s Darren Hughes and this gem by Australia’s Nick Smith which was as ludicrous as it was glorious.

As it happened: Australia v Ireland, International Rules Test
