Ireland player ratings v Fiji

Ireland made 13 changes from last weekend's record 38-3 victory over South Africa, and endured some nervy moments en route to their slender win over the eye-catching Pacific Islanders.

15 ANDREW CONWAY Another impressive showing from the Munster star: 7 (out of 10)

14 DARREN SWEETNAM Grafted well but was not able to cut loose too often: 7

13 CHRIS FARRELL Solid enough without ever dominating on his Test debut: 6

12 STUART MCCLOSKEY A few too many errors for the Ulster battering ram to challenge Ireland's first-choice midfield: 6

11 DAVE KEARNEY Intercept pass for Nagusa try will have him kicking himself: 6

10 JOEY CARBERY So good on the front foot but must round out his game: 6

1 JACK MCGRATH Industrious early on but faded on return from injury: 6
