Ireland cruise past Samoa into quarter-finals despite Aki red

Ireland played with 14 men for 50 minutes but still eased into the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup with a seven try, 47-5 thrashing of Samoa in their final Pool A match. Centre Bundee Aki became the seventh player to be shown a red card at the tournament when he was sent off for a high tackle on Samoa flyhalf Ulupano Seuteni in the 29th minute but Ireland were already 21-5 up at that stage. Flyhalf Johnny Sexton earned the bonus point that secured their passage with his second try just before halftime and skipper Rory Best, prop Tadgh Furlong, fullback Jordan Larmour and number eight CJ Stander and winger Andrew Conway also crossed.
