The numerical advantage looked to have paid off straight away and it’s a fine finish by James Lowe in the left-hand corner. But the TMO has a look at it, and as it turns out, Fickou and Dulin somehow manage to get Lowe’s right foot to touch the whitewash before he grounded the ball.
It was subtle, but not subtle enough. Earls was charging on to that kick by Gibson-Park and on replay, le Roux is shown to have flicked his left boot at the Irishman, sending him crashing to the turf. Ireland will have a 10-minute spell with a man up.
