Watch: Moment Of Joey Carbery Magic Opens The Scoring Vs Fiji
By Mikey Traynor

While 13 changes from the side that so impressively defeated South Africa last week suggests that Joe Schmidt wanted to give a few younger players some experience against Fiji, there was a lot of excitement to see what they could do with the opportunity.

With Sexton rested, Joey Carbery was given a chance to strut his stuff at #10 and that is exactly what he did as he created the opening try of the match for Darren Sweetnam after just seven minutes.

Carbery exploited a defensive mismatch to bamboozle Fijian prop Campese Ma’afu with a step before guiding a sublime pass into the arms of Sweetnam who couldn't fail to score.

In the RTE studio at halftime, Shane Horgan pointed out how the Irish forwards helped to make it happen.

Such an exciting player, his handiwork went down rather well on social media.

Having missed his opening two kicks there are still areas of his game that could use some improvement, but it's getting more and more enjoyable to watch Joey Carbery play and there's a lot more to come.
