Stade des Alpes, Grenoble - Friday 25 November 2016
KO: 20:00 HT: 16-6 Att: tbc
SAMOA finished off the November Tour with a narrow 25-23 win against Canada in Grenoble on Friday night.
Samoa took 20 points from the foot of D’Angelo Leuila while Paul Perez had their lone try, while Canada secured two tries from DTH van der Merwe, Evan Olmstead scoring his first for his country. Connor Braid kicked eight points, but a missed conversion was the difference in the score.
Perez opened the scoring in the eighth minute as he touched down in the corner after a swift counter-attack by the Samoans left Canada reeling. Leuila quickly added to the lead two minutes later as he struck a drop goal to make it 10-0 before making it 13-0 in the 14th minute with his first penalty of the night.
Canada got themselves back into the game though as Braid got his side on the board with a 16th minute penalty to make it 13-3 but eight minutes later the Samoan lead was 16-3 as Leuila struck another penalty. Braid cut the deficit to 10 points before the interval with his second penalty of the night, and the teams went into the break 16-16.
However, despite a positive start to the second half from the Canadians, it was Leuila getting the first points of the second frame as he slotted a 50th minute penalty.
A 56th minute yellow card to Taiasina Tuifu'a became the catalyst for Canada as they took the ensuing lineout to just a meter out before Olmstead quickly touched down on the line to make it 19-11.
Veteran Jamie Cudmore was sent to the sin bin in the 62nd minute as he and Samoan centre Winston Stanley had a shoving match, but it was only the Canadian who would take a 10 minute breather. Despite losing a man, Canada roared on and two minutes later it was van der Merwe scoring after Phil Mack's box kick took a favourable bounce and the Canadian winger was in for his 22nd test try.
Leuila slotted a drop goal to push Samoa's lead to 22-16, and a 73rd minute penalty extended their advantage to 25, but Canada battled on and were rewarded in the 79th minute as van der Merwe collected Braid's cross-field kick to score. Despite a valiant effort, Canada was unable to muster anything in the closing moments of the match, falling 25-23 Samoa.

Aviva Stadium - Saturday 26 November 2016
KO: 17:30 HT: 17-7 Att: tbc
AN electrifying second half resurgence was not enough to keep Australia's hopes of a Grand Slam alive after a 24-27 defeat to a spirited Ireland at Aviva Stadium. The homeside starved the visitors of possession for 80 percent of the first half, and a 66th minute try to Ireland from wing Keith Earls proved to be the match-winner in a superb contest.
The Irish were first on the scoresheet with a Paddy Jackson penalty, swiftly followed up by giant lock Iain Henderson who barged over after the Wallabies were reduced to 14 men, Dean Mumm having been shown a yellow card for a dangerous tackle.
Ireland's second try was straight out of the playbook of their legendary former skipper, Brian O'Driscoll, although this time it was Leinster youngster Garry Ringrose who slipped under a tackle and powered his way through a pack of Wallabies defenders close to the line to slam it down for another five-pointer. The officials missed Devin Toner taking out David Pocock five metres ahead of the ruck prior to the score, and Jackson converted unflinchingly, Ireland racing out to a 17-0 lead by the 35th minute.
With an extraordinary weight of possession against them, the Wallabies desperately needed a spark before half time and it came in the most spectacular fashion from a lineout win just inside their own half. In a rehearsed move which the Aussies have used to great effect on tour, once again it was a short ball from Foley to a charging Michael Hooper which snapped the defensive line before the ball moved through the hands of support players Israel Folau and Dane Haylett-Petty, with the latter finishing off under the posts. With that wonderful strike, the Irish lead was cut to ten points at 17-7 but all the momentum was with the Wallabies coming out of the break.
The men in gold pressed immediately but a final pass from Pocock to Henry Speight was ruled forward with the line open in the 42nd minute. Three minutes later, they attacked the same corridor and this time were not to be denied as Tevita Kuridrani notched his fourth try in as many Tests on the tour, dotting down after the ball was spread wide through the hands after the Wallabies had built 11 phases of attack.
David Pocock was called for not rolling away to offer Ireland a gift three points to relieve the pressure and extend their lead to six points a short time later, 20-14.
Pocock tried to atone for the penalty immediately, snatching a pass from Irish half Conor Murray and sending the ball through the hands out wide again, only for the play to break down on a final pass from Folau which found the grass. Shortly after, using the width of the field this time on the right, replacement back Sefa Naivalu charged on to a pass from Hodge through a huge hole in the Irish defence to register Australia's third try for the day. Naivalu had been on the field for just over a minute, after replacing Speight. Another Foley conversion gave the Wallabies their first lead in the match, and a penalty goal five minutes later padded the lead out to 24-20 at the midpoint of the second half.
But from there the momentum shifted again. Mumm was caught again for a high shot to put Ireland back on the attack deep in Australia's half with a lineout win from the penalty. After working it to mid-field, two long cut-out balls back to the left presented an open tryline for Ireland winger Keith Earls to dot down and regain the lead for his team.
Both sides threw everything at it in the dying stages, Ireland feeling the pressure as injuries began to mount, but there would be no more scoring in a thoroughly entertaining and absorbing battle.
The match ended in frustration for the visitors with Bernard Foley shown a yellow card and a scrum penalty on the final play extinguishing hopes of a Wallabies Grand Slam.
