The Original All Blacks. This has been a great game.

NZ scrum 10 metres out on the right hand side. Scrum-half Marmion is on the wing. It makes it more intriguing. Naholo on for Ben Smith now. They keep plugging away They are consolidating possession deep but have lost their shape. Ireland have a lineout on the New Zealand 10m line on the left. It goes through all sorts of hands - Barrett, Lienert-Brown, Barrett again, Perenara was that forward?

Scrappy and scintillating at the same time. Best is complaining to the ref. More Fields of Athenry. Murray feeds a very noisy scrum then Ireland run it on the Or at least in the headline? New Zealand go left, then right. Dagg has space and arcs round, but his offload only leads to a knock on off Lienert-Brown! But they lose it and Ireland come from deep! Was that another high tackle on Heaslip?

Murray boxkicks, and New Zealand come from deep through Barrett. A loose pass from Perenara slows but they go down the short side to be greeted by a green wall. But they are turned over and Perenara thumps down field and into touch. New Zealand are still giving away penalties.

Three points scored during each sin-binning. Kearney is nearly in as Ben Smith fumbles a kick, then Ardie Savea goes on the break. New Zealand run from deep bit out left, they get pinged for clinging on! Three mins more in the bin for Fekitoa!

And then New Zealand give away another penalty. And then a penalty comes. Ireland told to get their hands out of the ruck, and they ignored him. Great work again from Ardie Savea. Lineout in the corner for Ireland, who rumble. They are on the move. Again, great defence from NZ. Paddy Jackson crosskicks and in claiming Trimble does brilliantly but puts a foot in touch. I think that was the right call.
