It may not be a game Ireland wanted to play in, but the team are showing they are capable in the 5th/6th Place Playoff Semi-Final at the Women's Rugby World Cup.

Against Australia for the second time in the tournament, Tom Tierney's side are hoping to finish the competition on a high note, following the disappointing performance against France last Thursday in Dublin.

On front of a sadly sparse crowd in Belfast, the team scored one of the tries of the tournament, with winger Alison Miller touching down, after making the best of a mistimed Nora Stapleton crossfield kick.

The Laois native was able to beat three Australian defenders, including a brilliant hand-off on their scrum-half Katrina Barker.

Miller's try gave Ireland a 12-5 lead, but Australia have come back into the game to lead 19-12 at half-time.

Ireland will need more pieces of magic like Miller's if they are to win the game.
