Ieuan Evans; "A tough week for that man Joe Schmidt..."

What about Andy Farrell behind him who has to keep coaching these lads next season?

Irish backline has been particularly disasterous today

Don't pick any woman beaters if you don't want the comments then. :?

Beauden Barrett has been amazing.

The best player on the pitch for me today, and by some distance.

I'm starting to think Ireland may not squeak this at the end.

This is the most depressing game I’ve ever been to. Feels like we didn’t fire a shot.

All blacks were brilliant, didn’t give us an opening. Gotta be very happy going forward. Good luck guys.

Hats off to the AB forwards. Had to turn up tonight and they bloody well did.

Commiserations Ireland. ABs had to bring their A-game today to beat a team as good as the Green.

Not how Joe and some of our players deserved to end their Ireland careers, but you have to earn it on the day.

And we were outplayed by the best - congrats kiwis :thumbup:

Is that Todd yellow legit?

I mean it's done, but how can he be offside?

Jeez - A man up and they let NZ have the biggest overlap imaginable.

Terribly disappointing game (if you aren't a NZ fan).

Well done NZ. Again, sorry we didn't give you a game.

Should be a belter next week.

So that’s Ireland still with a worse World Cup record than Scotland over the years.

Well done New Zealand, a really comprehensive game by yourselves. Must be chuffed at the result.

Well all reset for Ireland now.

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