Thanks for the memories Joe, safe journey home to NZ.
He's staying in Ireland.

Weird to think that this could be Steve Hansen's last match with the AB's. He's been in the AB camp since 2004.

Also could be the last game I ever watch Kieran Read play. I've viewed every senior game he's ever played for well over a decade, maybe missing just 1 or 2 SR or provincial over the course of his career.

You beat The All Blacks the last time the teams played the pressure is on NZ not Ireland.

Reality. Our backrow has been decimated in the last year or so. The rest of the players are out of form.

Glad to hear JOe is staying??? What happened there?

Hee.

I think in an hour and a half you are going to be behind the couch hoping that Ireland can hang on to the slender lead and thinking of converting to any religion that will lead to you winning.

Listening to S Barnes dribble on about BB’s goal kicking and it could cost the ABs. Does the bloke even rugby?

Best of luck to both sides. Hopefully there are no injuries and no cards.

Go, All Blacks!

Surely this must be the biggest match thread prior to kickoff?

Bored historians??
I don't follow NH threads closely, but the biggest pre-match page count for an All Black test thread since I have been on the forum was around 48-49 pages before kickoff. That was a particularly spiteful AB's vs Springboks thread back in 2008 to start that year's Tri Nations.
Thanks AC. Frankly amazing. I wonder if there'll be more posts pre kickoff or post kickoff.

Lol. That's a rookie thing to say. A pro commentator should at least know who will be doing the goal kicking.
