Far better result than I thought it would be.

Commiserations Irish fans.

Not as good as you usually are tonight.

I was looking to see if he was past it but no, world class performance.

I think we knew the outside backs were going to be up against it. No control or precision from 1-10, though.

It is. It's a true statement (All Blacks do have only one though), but the timing is a bit off. Sour grapes.
Just a classless prick of a comment.

The replay clearly showed Todd was onside and did nothing wrong.

You know he originally gave it for being “clearly” offside though right?

It would have been interesting to see your 2016-2018 team at their peak play this game.

Let's be clear on this. Scotland beat Samoa, once, in the amateur era. Ireland and Scotland have an equal record against Tier 1 nations in RWC knockouts.

Best of luck for the rest of the tournament NZ. Unfortunately we couldn't reverse our plummeting form in 2019.

Was over after 20 minutes.

Not even a contest.

Well done Kiwis.

Semi-final should be really interesting.

He deliberately obstructed the base of the goalpost to prevent the Irishman from touching the ball against that aforesaid base.

I saw it in real time and had a chuckle.
He did. It was quite cynical. But he didn’t break any of the rules in doing so, it was completely within the laws. One of the few wrong decisions of Owens career.

Statement games from Both the ABs and England.
Next week is going to be a ripper.

Ireland way below their best, but ABs vision, running lines, and skill far too good.

Well, I didn't expect that. What a performance from the All Blacks. A line in the sand has been drawn, and next weeks game against the English will be a belter. 14 points to the Irish doesn't really state how dominant that All Black side was, to be honest.

Ireland, thanks for the hit out guys, you played with stout hearts, but I don't think anyone could have managed the All Blacks today.

Keiran Read was a colossus today, Ardie was a beast. All three Barretts did their grand-dad proud today! Aaron Smith probably had his best game in the number 9 jersey ever. Codie Taylor, take a bow!

Special mention too for Jack Goodhue, who showed tonight why he got the nod in that 13 jersey!

Don't know how I am going to get to sleep tonight.

You know that if someone was diving for a try you can dive in front of them to stop them from scoring. They should give it a special name maybe.....like a tackle. Oh, but you cant do it in front of the post?? quote that rule in the book there champ. Nigel Owens gave the battlers a freebee how can you not just admit that.
