Cheika delighted with Australia's work ethic after Ireland win

'It's frustrating when the scrum spins through about 90 degrees, nearly 180 degrees, but when if not solved elsewhere we're got to make sure we can solve it ourselves.

Foley converted and, try as they might, Ireland could not muster a fightback, Kieran Marmion having a score ruled out in time added on for an earlier knock-on.

The former captain, playing his first Test in 18 months, crashed over from two metres out in the 72nd minute to give Australia a decisive, nine-point cushion.

But the Wallabies deserved the victory and will go into the second Test in Melbourne full of confidence after a successful start to their global season.

Cheika said the whole back row had contributed to the win.

"This group, the success that we had the last time we were together was fantastic, we've all been aiming for that for quite a while but we all want to finish this season on a high and we're all really competitive", Murray said.

"(But) Poey's work rate was off the chart, and that's what he's renowned for".

"So I actually swapped it around", said Pocock with a grin.

Carbery edged the tourists in front with his second penalty in the 26th minute and the Irish kicking from hand continued to keep the hosts penned in their own half.

Haylett-Petty said the Wallabies might be tweaking some parts of their attack, but he doesn't expect much change from Ireland in the second Test.

But from quick ruck ball, Will Genia popped a pass to Foley, who dived over in the corner to give the home side an 8-6 lead at half-time.

But the visitors hit the front soon after when Carbery kicked his third penalty following a ruck infringement from Pocock.

Pocock and his management worked hard to convince Rugby Australia to allow him to take a year out of the game in 2017, so he is well versed in negotiations.

"Most guys certainly don't feel they're at their best - there's always that little bit more you're trying to get out of yourself".

Australia, having earlier seen an Israel Folau try disallowed, upped the ante in the closing stages and Bernard Foley put them 11-9 to the good with a penalty before Pocock, playing his first global since taking a sabbatical from the game previous year, crossed from close range to hand Ireland a first loss since a 22-9 reverse at the hands of Wales in March 2017.
