That is us all done and dusted for today though.

Another bumper ticket in store next weekend.

See you there.

England 37-21 South Africa

England under Eddie Jones: What a difference a year makes

At Twickenham, England's unblemished run under coach Eddie Jones continued as they ended a ten-year wait for a win over South Africa.

Scotland 22-23 Australia

Highlights: Scotland 22-23 Australia

At Murrayfield, Scotland were left frustrated once again as Australia, down to 14 men, scored a late try to nick victory by a point.

Wales 24-20 Argentina

Williams gives Wales the lead

So let's wrap up what has gone on today. Let's start off in Cardiff where Wales held off Argentina, without totally managing to convince.

All credit to Canada, we knew they'd come here and provide a physical battle but they put up a real solid performance and they've really improved since the last time I've seen them.

Ireland 52-21 Canada

Canada captain DTH van der Merwe: "We have to be ready to not let them straight back into the game and let the momentum shift, we need to learn from this.

"It's tough, we only get together twice a year, when I came into the camp this year I met 10 or 12 new guys I'd never met before! But we can't make excuses, we have to start somewhere."

Ireland 52-21 Canada

Ireland captain Peter O'Mahony: "The most pleasing thing was seeing the new lads doing well, it was a great performance by some of the young lads.

"We got a bit disjointed at times but Canada put us under a lot of pressure and I'm very proud of the performance in the second-half.

"We've got a big recovery few days coming up, we'll come back and put in another performance against the All Blacks."

Ireland 52-21 Canada

Joe Schmidt's men make their way to the sidelines.

A creditable performance from Ireland's second string, but thoughts immediately wander to next weekend's meeting with the All Blacks.

That is the cherry on the cake from James Tracy, Ireland attacking in wave after wave.

You have to say it has been a very entertaining match with total commitment from both sides.

Try - James Tracey

Ireland 52-21 Canada

Ireland debutant James Tracey burrows over from close range after Dave Kilcoyne's romp through the loose.

Joey Carbery's kick against the post and back out is the last act of the match.

Tony Ward

Former Ireland fly-half

You've got to say that has been total rugby for that try, every player touched the ball in the move.

Joey Carbery offers a real point of difference of the bench, he's got a spark with ball in hand, he could be an option off the bench over Jackson next week, even though Paddy was perfect with the boot today.

Try - Tiernan O'Halloran

Ireland 47-21 Canada

Canada chased back well, but they could not hold Ireland at bay. Tiernan O'Halloran, up from full-back, makes the extra man on the end of a blindside thurst and dots down.

Joey Carbery cannot make the kick from way, way out wide.

Ireland 42-21 Canada

Garry Ringrose scampers though and into oceans of space in the soft underbelly of the Canada defence. He links up with Keith Earls and Ireland are up to within five metres.

Ireland 42-21 Canada

This game is trundling to a conclusion rather than accelerating towards the finishline.

The two packs get bogged down in a series of scrums in midfield.

Ireland 42-21 Canada

Joey Carbery makes a big call, coming surging out of the defensive line, and he makes it work for Ireland as he snags his target.

Excellent work. Canada had a man overlap there and Carbery stopped them at source.

Replacement

Ireland 42-21 Canada

Joe Schmidt completes his half-back freshen-up as Leinster's Joey Carbery comes on in place of Paddy Jackson at 10.

Reggie Corrigan

Former Ireland prop on BBC Radio UIster

Great play by the home pack, Canada are very tired and their set piece is falling to pieces.

I think that Marmion has put his hand up very well to be second behind Conor Murray today - Murray is the number one scrum-half in world rugby at the moment in my opinion.

Kieran Marmion

Converted try - Kieran Marmion

Ireland 42-21 Canada

Ireland shovel the Canada pack back over their own line and Kieran Marmion dives in among the legs to get downward pressure on the ball and claim a try.

That is his last involvement. Luke McGrath is on in his place.

Kieran Marmion
PA

Ireland 35-21 Canada

Luke Marshall knocks on from a flat pass from scrum-half Kieran Marmion close to the line.

Good to play close to the line but Marshall was taking the ball so close to the Canadian defenders that he could smell what they had for a pre-match meal.

They could have given themselves more margin for error there.

Ireland 35-21 Canada

Tony Ward

Former Ireland fly-half

He's had some very big carries today, Ultan Dillane, he's been running the ball with real menace.

He had to score once he went for the line because he had three people outside him!

Try - Ultan Dillane

Ireland 33-21 Canada

Ireland reply at speed and in kind.

Ultan Dillane has been the epitome of the mobile modern second row so far tonight and he barges over the line to add a try to his credits.

Paddy Jackson lands his kick to restore the 12-point cushion.

Andrew Priestley: This was always going to be a difficult fixture after the euphoria surrounding the squad after last week and the 15 changes.

That's some very nice play from Canada, we haven't seen much of their width so far in the match.

But Ireland will be very disappointed once more, they shouldn't be letting Canada into this game like they are.

Converted try - Matt Evans

Ireland 28-21 Canada

A lovely move from Canada ends with Matt Evans crashing over in the corner and getting the nose of the ball to the turf just before he is wrestled into touch.

Gordon McRorie lands a superb touchline conversion.

Try review

Ireland 28-14 Canada

Matt Evans goes flying over the whitewash but it looks like Tiernan O'Halloran has turned the Canada full-back turtle to prevent the ball being grounded...

The video officials will have to decide.

This game has been unstructured at times, and Joe Schmidt won't be very happy with his team - but it's been very entertaining!

Ireland 28-14 Canada

Connor Braid puts in a good tackle on Sean O'Brien, throwing himself into the spokes to break the flanker's stride.

Canada get a break as Billy Holland is penalised for binding around an opponent's neck at the ensuing breakdown and take the chance to clear their lines.

Ireland 28-14 Canada

Ireland trying to thread the needle in a five-metre channel as congested as a rush-hour Tube carriage, but Tiernan O'Halloran's off-load is a little behind Keith Earls as the line beckoned.

If Canada had their moment of forward beauty in the first half with their maul, then Ireland have theirs here with their scrummaging. 

And I'm very glad that the referee only allowed Canada to collapse the scrum twice before he awarded the try.

Converted try - Penalty try

Ireland 28-14 Canada

Canada's pack are sent into a tailspin once again, crumpling like the San Andreas fault under the tectonic-level pressure being applied by Ireland.

The referee has had enough and trots under the posts to award the penalty try.

Paddy Jackson steps up to plop over the two extra points.

Paddy Jackson

Ireland 21-14 Canada

Canada are pinged for pulling the set-piece south. Ireland are turning the screw up front and they opt to put Canada through the wringer once more.

Tony Ward

Former Ireland fly-half

That's probably the best two minutes that Ireland have played in this game so far.

We said they needed to up their intensity and that's exactly what they've done at the start of this second half.

Ireland 21-14 Canada

Djustice Sears-Duru fails to let go of the tackled man on the floor.

Penalty to Ireland, just 10m out. The boys in green huddle up. They are going to opt for the scrum I think.

Ireland 21-14 Canada

Paddy Jackson with an jinking break. He offloads to Craig Gilroy. Ireland up to within 15m. Canada tackling hard and coming up fast.

Kick-off

Paddy Jackson gets us back up and running in the second half.

If Ireland approach this second-half as if they're playing against England or Wales and get back to basics, there's no reason why they won't put on a big score against this Canada team.
