Rory McIlroy hopes to make breakthrough on day three of Open


Ireland battled to a landmark series win in New Zealand after holding off a second-half fightback to secure a stunning 32-22 success from an epic encounter in Wellington.

Andy Farrell’s men led by 19 points at the break courtesy of a spellbinding first-half display which brought tries for Josh Van Der Flier, Hugo Keenan and Robbie Henshaw.


Rory McIlroy feels well-placed to end his major drought as he heads into day three of the 150th Open Championship.

The Co Down man tees off his third round at The Open from 10 under-par this afternoon, three shots behind halfway leader Cameron Smith.

Shane Lowry is five-under after three holes today, while David Carey is out on course from five-under at 2.10pm.

Kevin Kisner took advantage of favourable conditions to surge up the leaderboard this morning.

The world number 25, who made the halfway cut on the mark of level par, revelled in the sunshine and lack of wind to make six birdies in a front nine of 30, one off the record in an Open at St Andrews set by Tony Jacklin in 1970.
