VIDEO: It's been a year since Ireland beat Australia

Those 366 days have flown by.

AN AWFUL LOT of water has passed under the bridge since Ireland recorded what many have described as their best ever result in rugby.

It was one of those days when everything clicked. The scrum, the choke tackle, Rob Kearney’s high tackle. Even Jonathan Sexton’s sorry excuse for a drop goal somehow managed to wobble its way over the bar.

If only Conor Murray’s try had stood, eh?

If only we hadn’t wound up looking bereft of ideas against Wales three weeks later.

Still, we’ll always have that one wild night in Auckland*.
