Euro Wrap: Herring scores on Irish debut

Former Western Province and Stellenbosch University hooker Rob Herring came off the replacements bench to score his first test try in Ireland's 38-3 win over the Springboks in Dublin at the weekend.

Herring was joined in Ireland's matchday squad by ex-Bulls and South Africa under-20 loose forward CJ Stander, who shone at No 8 in his adopted country's biggest ever victory against South Africa.

In other end-of-year test action, former Western Province and Stormers centre Huw Jones scored one of six tries for Scotland in their 44-38 triumph over Samoa at Murrayfield.

This was Jones's first taste of international action since recovering from a hamstring injury sustained during Scotland's Six Nations encounter with Italy at Murrayfield in March.

Former Cheetahs tighthead prop WP Nel was also in Scotland's run-on side while ex-Kings loose forward Cornell du Preez saw action in the second half after starting on the replacements bench.

In other test action, former Sharks flanker Abraham Steyn helped Italy end a nine-match losing streak when they secured a hard-fought 19-10 victory over Fiji in Catania.

Elsewhere, ex-Free State Cheetahs prop Daniel Kotze played off the replacements bench for France in their 38-18 defeat to New Zealand at the Stade France in Paris.
