  1. North 3-1 South

    ireland

    Three out of four ain't bad as Meatloaf didn't say.

    England against Argentina was only the only dud on a hugely entertaining day of rugby.

    And Wales were the only northern hemisphere side to lose, coming a cropper to Australia.

    But Scotland enjoyed a thrilling win against Samoa - a game which boasted 11 tries in total and Ireland thrashed South Africa in Dublin.

    'Highlights' of England v Argentina are up now on BBC Two and online. But they will be worth it just to see Eddie Jones simmering on the sidelines.

    See you next week.

  2. Post update

    So all Australians are full of praise for stadium, the atmosphere and the way Wales attacked the game in Cardiff.

    But the consensus is the southern-hemisphere side got over the line due to their 'winning mentality'.

    So close, yet again for Wales.

  3. 'Winning mentality'

    FT: Wales 21-29 Australia

    Australia head coach Michael Cheika speaking on BBC Two:

    "It's such a great place to play rugby - the crowd, the stadium and the history. It makes you want to play footie.

    "We just hung in there today. Wales played really well and were on the front foot from the first minute. We defended really well under difficult circumstances.

    "The guys were up for it, they stopped a lot of short-range efforts from Wales but our winning-mentality helped us hang in there."

  4. Incredible Ireland

    Ireland 38-3 South Africa

    An incredible finish to the game. Absolutely magnificent final quarter from Ireland to end the game in style. They were in control throughout and what a start to the autumn series.

  5. Full-time

    Ireland 38-3 South Africa

    Party time in the Aviva.

    The crowd head off sharpish in the hope of seeing the Republic of Ireland football team do something similar against Denmark.

  6. Wales players under the microscope

    Wales 21-29 Australia

    Sam Warburton

    Wales flanker on BBC Two

    Tomorrow will be an off day. The coaches will be deep into the laptops. The guys will go home tonight and apart from a medical assessment, they'll have Sunday with their families and then get down to the analysis on Monday.

    The next serious training day will be Tuesday.

    You go into the team room and there's a big 60-inch TV with each player and all their statistics from the game.

    There's no hiding place.

  7. Converted try - Ireland 38-3 South Africa

    Jacob Stockdale (con Carbery)

    South Africa have been taken to the cleaners.

    With the clock in the red, it is a superb try to polish up the scoreline with Joey Carbery's kick out wide brilliantly gathered by Darren Sweetnam.

    Play switches to the opposite wing where Jacob Stockdale motors in for a fine and fully deserved score.

    Carbery with a superb conversion from way, way out wide.

  8. Post update

    Ireland 31-3 South Africa

    Johnny Sexton is announced as the man of the match over the Aviva tannoy.

    He reacts with a raised eyebrow and a sly grin.

  9. Post update

    Ireland 31-3 South Africa

    This is going to be Ireland's record win over South Africa. And by some margin.

    The scoreline trumps a 32-15 win back in 2006.

  10. Mauled

    Ireland 31-3 South Africa

    Tony Ward

    Former Ireland and Lions fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    They've taken South Africa on in the maul and minced them there for that final try. This is going to be a huge win for Ireland.

  11. 'I like coming here'

    Wales 21-29 Australia

    Michael Hooper

    Do Australia like coming to Cardiff? Here's what captain Michael Hooper has to say:

    "I actually do and so does the team," he told BBC Two.

    "It's a great place to play in front of a noisy crowd. It's never easy to win and play here. The Welsh took it to us but the boys dug deep.

    "Obviously they've got new threats we haven't seen before. We're happy we could deal with those threats and get the win."

  12. Converted try - Ireland 31-3 South Africa

    Rob Herring

    It's been a long time since I have seen a northern hemisphere pack bully the Boks like this.

    Ireland pack low and tight as their jumper returns to earth and plough though the South Africa forwards with replacement Rob Herring at the back to dot down the ball.

    Two more for Joey Carbery.

  13. Post update

    Ireland 24-3 South Africa

    Five minutes left and Ireland are pushing for more.

    A kick to the corner and the replacements want a pushover score of their own...

  14. Defence in charge

    Ireland 24-3 South Africa

    Tony Ward

    Former Ireland and Lions fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    There is fabulous camaraderie around the Irish squad led by Bundee Aki. And it's all on the back of hard work and hard graft on the training field. Their defensive positions have been excellent today.

  15. Replacements

    Ireland 24-3 South Africa

    Joe Schmidt throws Darren Sweetnam into the mix in place of full-back Rob Kearney to big cheers from the crowd.

    And Johnny Sexton gets a similar send-off as Joey Carbery trots on in his place.

  16. 'It's all about the winning mindset'

    FT: Wales 21-29 Australia

    Will Genia

    Australia scrum-half and man of the match Will Genia speaking on BBC Two:

    "It was a great game to play and we knew they would look to move the ball. What a great atmosphere and good rugby to watch.

    "There was a lot more ball movement from Wales today and they created chances in the second half. Without the dropped balls we would have been scrambling.

    "For us its about creating that winning mindset. We played well in the first half and were forced to defend hard in the second but it's all about the mindset."

  17. Converted try - Ireland 24-3 South Africa

    Rhys Ruddock (71 mins) Con: Sexton

    Game,set, match.

    Ireland fling the ball wide, Robbie Henshaw punches through a hole and suddenly the Boks defence is in tatters.

    The tourists manage to haul Andrew Conway just short, but you don't stop a full-bore Rhys Ruddock from that distance.

    The back row is over as is Johnny Sexton's conversion kick.

  18. Replacement

    Ireland 17-3 South Africa

    Kieran Marmion, John Ryan and James Ryan are on for the Lions trio of Conor Murray, Tadhg Furlong and Iain Henderson.

  19. 'I'm really proud'

    Wales 21-29 Australia

    Sam Warburton

    Wales flanker on BBC Two

    It's a loss, so I'm obviously disappointed but I'm really proud.

    I thought in the second half Wales played some great rugby. When they go back over the analysis, apart from a freakish try by Kurtley Beale, we had most of the possession and territory.

  20. Toothless Springboks

    Ireland 17-3 South Africa

    Tony Ward

    Former Ireland and Lions fly-half on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    I have been hugely disappointed in South Africa. They've had so much possession but I can't remember anything close to a line break. Ireland are in complete control all the way across the field.
