27 Nov 2016

It was a momentous weekend for Ireland as they created national history, with Ulster Rugby’s Rory Best earning his 100th international cap in their 27-24 defeat of Australia.

The results saw them seal wins over the big three southern hemisphere sides in the same year for the first time, while elsewhere, Scotland crossed the whitewash on six occasions to record a 43-16 victory over Georgia.

Wales made it three wins out of four in their Autumn Internationals schedule for the first time since 2002 with a 27-13 victory over South Africa.

Here, we select just some of the best reactions on social media from over the weekend, with plenty of Guinness PRO12 stars coming to the fore.
