All over.

Fantastic result for the sport - it's a bit embarrassing to have Tier 1 nations that have never beaten NZ. NZ were bloody awful today but a lot of that was down to Ireland's manic aggression and belief. Nice to see it's not all one way still in this sport, it was looking a bit predictable for a while.

Congratulations Ireland, commiserations NZ. I fear for the rest of us now that NZ have had their wakeup call.

Well done Ireland. Thoroughly deserved and not only that, done it in style playing positive rugby. Didn't bottle it in the second half like so many others.

Injury toll on the ABs is concerning. Also they have played appallingly bad. But Ireland played what's in front of them, and none of that is any excuse that NZ should use to explain the loss. They lost to a better side on the day. Simple.

The world game boring and in trouble...? No. You just have to wait a bit longer sometimes.

NZ's record in Chicago is abysmal.

A bit of a stain on their legacy imo.

Wow, if you want to see the officials in your pocket you just got it. For all those plums who said they wanted the ABs reffed out of the game you just got it. Plums.

Thought the calls definitely went our way first 40.

What prevented a replay of 2013 was a shuffled and jaded NZ 15, Andy Farrell and an impact bench. So proud of the lads :thumbup:
