Aki’s big hit fires up Ir­ish

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport | Rugby Union -

Ire­land’s 38-3 vic­tory over South Africa had the fin­ger­prints of the metic­u­lous Joe Sch­midt all over it. How­ever, pri­mal ag­gres­sion set the tone. Pre­cisely 49 sec­onds into his Test de­but, Bundee Aki (cen­tre) man­han­dled Spring­bok tight­head Coe­nie Oosthuizen – who was oddly in mid­field from a line-out. This pic­ture of a pumped-up Aki cel­e­brat­ing his hit tells the story.
