All Blacks made it hard on themselves in the North by kicking away too much ball and trying to play with out it. Managed to scrape home. That final game against Ireland...tense. Great game to watch if you are a New Zealander, awful to watch if you were Irish.
Ireland bring the pressure and intensity to achieve historic first ever win over New Zealand in 111 years of playing history between these two teams.

With the NZ All Blacks coming off the back of a record 18 straight test victories this was truly a momentus occasion, the All Blacks were no easy beats!!

The Irish dominated the game scoring 40 points, the highest score any team has posted against NZ in something like 12 years. A late fight back by New Zealand saw them get within 4 but the Irish had enough left in the tank to secure victory and were definitely the better team on the pitch today.

As a kiwi and rugby fan it hurts to lose, but well played Ireland you deserved the win.
