Sophie Spence says Ireland's composure and resilience helped them see off a battling Australia side 19-17 in their Women's World Cup opener in Dublin.
"They Australians brought it to us but I thought we showed extreme resilience," said the Ireland forward, who scored one of the host nation's three tries at UCD.
