And they should have won. A penalty kick was missed that would have put the Irish up by enough points that the All Black would have lost, because there was only a few minutes left, but enough time for the All Blacks to work their way down the pitch (and it really helped that a forward pass wasn't called in one of the phases of play close to the Irish goal line).
One of the tries really impressed me, where the player being tackled kept the ball alive and passed it off as he was hitting the ground. Lots of times the tackled player just goes to ground meaning another ruck, and the possibility of a static ruck being formed in which the defense reorganizes itself. There was plenty of quick ball in this game. The other try that was impressive was the Aussie number 7 taking on his tackler and keeping his feet until he was close to the goal line, and the number 10 was right there to snag the ball and dive over. »
I doubt that's what happened. I can only come away with the idea that the ball was played off the ground near the goal line by the defense, which should be a penalty. And this wouldn't be the first time two teams played with shirts that shared a color, and in this case the one team has only a bit of yellow on their shirts to the other team.
