DUBLIN (AP) Ireland held out Australia 26-23 at Lansdowne Road despite being outscored three tries to two on Saturday.

The Six Nations champion's second win over a southern hemisphere power in two weeks - South Africa was washed away 29-15 - allows Ireland to go into 2015, Rugby World Cup year, on a seven-match winning streak and believing anything is possible.

But captain Paul O'Connell figured Ireland has been too inconsistent in the past to regard the autumn results as a good omen.
