Cape Town - The Irish are eager to make amends for their late capitulation against the Springboks in Johannesburg last weekend.

Ireland surrendered a 26-10 lead in the last quarter to lose the second Test 32-26 at Ellis Park.

It enabled the Springboks to level the three-Test series 1-1 heading into this weekend’s final encounter in Port Elizabeth.

Scrumhalf Conor Murray says the players are frustrated and annoyed after letting slip a golden opportunity to win the series.

He is however confident that they can rebound and win the final Test at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

"We can right the wrongs this weekend," Murray told the Irish Independent.

"We definitely believe we can do it. We've just got to stay tight, stay together. It's our last game of the season, and it's a massive one and we've just got to give it everything.”

Ireland won the first Test 26-20 at Newlands in Cape Town.
