Impressive Ireland overcome All Blacks

"Everyone just threw everything at it, I think all 23 players of both teams, and the Irish we just too good for us tonight so full credit to them", he said.

Kiwi boss Schmidt could well return home to his native New Zealand after next year's World Cup, and if so the 53-year-old would push himself into the reckoning as a future All Blacks coach. In terms of how they hold onto the ball, they're one of the best tier one nations in the world.

"We've only beaten them once in our history but that monkey is off of our backs and I think it will be a real test as to where we are at against them".

It was a bruising first half that contained a bevy of penalty concessions on the All Blacks' behalf, but Ireland were unable to force their hand on the scoreboard, holding a slim three point lead at half time.

The game will long be remembered as on of the most brutal and physical Test matches the professional era has ever seen, and even forced World Rugby to take another look at their high tackle directives.

"The Irish are undoubtedly the best side up here (the northern hemisphere) at the moment".

Ireland were duly rewarded minutes later when they moved into the visiting 22 and, following an offside infringement, Sexton kicked them ahead.


"We've got to find our opportunities (to try to win the ball), we can't be too hungry to look for those opportunities, discipline's going to be crucial". "Also, their ability to defend very strongly as well".

"We won't care about the performance [against New Zealand] if we get a result", O'Driscoll said.

Dan Leavy, who starred from the bench in Ireland's 28-17 win over the Pumas last weekend, is rewarded with a starting berth in place of Sean O'Brien, who misses the game through injury, joining Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander in the back row.

That was enough for Joe Schmidt's men to claim just their second victory over the All Blacks, after their triumph in Chicago two years ago, despite Barrett's late penalty. Jordi Murphy has come into the reserves.

"New Zealand are renowned for the style of rugby they play, and one to 15 they can all play and put people into space and through holes".

"With 20 minutes left to play in South Africa recently they were down 20-13 - that's an incredible turnaround to get up and win that game - but they have made a habit of doing it, albeit sometimes it's by a whisker".

Firstly, O'Mahony won a penalty at the breakdown before the wing took over, producing a piece of individual brilliance to help take Ireland 10 points in front. "If you had Murray on there I'd be a lot more confident".
