Ireland dominating and New Zealand down to 13

Ireland are off to another stonking start against the All Blacks, for the second week in a row.

Last week Ireland stormed ahead against the former world champions, only to be dismantled shortly afterward. This was partly down to veteran fly-half, Jonny Sexton coming off the field after failing his head injury assessment.

This time around, Sexton is still on the field, and after a quarter of the match and the Irish are in full control. With 75% of possession, it’s difficult to see where New Zealand are going to be able to grab this game and turn it back into their favour.

A huge late hit from Leicester Faingaanuku, the New Zealand winger, is about to make the game that much harder.

A clearing kick from Hansen saw the Irish gain a good 50 odd metres as the speedy winger was hit late by his opposing number.

Come the 25th minute the All Blacks lose another player and possibly find themselves lucky not to concede a penalty try:

30th minute, New Zealand have their first red card of the game:
