Absolutely ruthless defending by NZ
I suppose it's easy when you can tackle people in the head.

Ireland have been.lucky we would hAve won by 40 if not for the sh#t sendoffs. And last week ireland should have had few players sent off for time wasting.

Anyway this is the same ireland team that lost to sa. The sa that lost to italy. Which is why even when everything goes your way we can beat you comfortably. Learn to score tries. Ireland are mentally weak which is why theyve never got past quater finals in world cup.

Excuse me that time of the month. Good win All Blacks

Ringrose has come into the match, VdF has been brilliant, SOB and Heaslip great, the starting front row did so well and the locks too.


The issue is actually our attack. Paddy has done fine, but with Sexton and Henshaw out we just don't have the speed/creativity. Yes, the kiwis have defended very well, but we didn't have enough to throw at them.

Come Six Nations we have to go Henshaw-Ringrose in the centres - Payne has been solid but he's far more creative from fullback.

Great effort from the lads tonight though :thumbup:

Their accuracy has been oustanding actually, just not enough pace and imagination to beat this insane NZ defense

Pop them back in, strap to adjacent fingers, 30 second fixit job. Get back on the f**k field!

Hand injuries are my weakness, they really are worse than eye injuries for me. Feels really weird when you pop a dislocation in though, just pops back in like... what the hell was your problem again?

NZ midfield as weak as it's been in years. Fekitoa is a very warm point in the attack.

Ireland have owned the ball and only scored 9 points. Not clinical enough. NZ have defended brilliantly and been happy to concede cynical pens if needed.

Ireland pretty much stopped trying to win this the moment they didn't score in the initial wave after the half.

Even with 4-5 to go they slowly take line outs.

Pathetic.

They'll look back and see a few times when taking 3 or a dg would've been the way to go. This could be a 6 point game right now.
