Ireland couldn't hold off a late Australian onslaught as the Boys in Green slumped to a 45-17 defeat in Saturday's Rugby U20 World Championship.
Ryan Baird's red card stacked the odds against Ireland but, high on confidence following last week's resounding victory over England, they battled back to take the lead.
Stewart Moore produced a moment of individual brilliance to give Ireland an improbable seven-point gap just before the hour mark.
