BY Shaywaterworth  ·  Sunday Nov 18, 2018

Ulster winger Jacob Stockdale scored a stunning try to inspire Ireland to an historic victory over the All Blacks on Saturday night.

The final score was 16-9 at the Aviva Stadium making it the first time Ireland have beaten the All Blacks at home and only the second win over New Zealand in history.

Stockdale’s try came in the 47th minute from a well-executed training ground move involving a switch of play by centre Bundee Aki and Stockdale’s delicate chip exposed the New Zealand defence to setup the first try of the match.

Ireland blindside flanker Peter O’Mahony also made headlines for what was arguably a career-defining performance and his try-saving interception was a key moment in the game.

Beauden Barrett played a grubber kick through the Irish defence to set up Ben Smith for what looked a certain try, but O’Mahony somehow got back just in time to make a crucial interception with 20 minutes to play.

After the full-time whistle Dublin was bouncing with excitement after beating the current world champions and it was the first time the All Blacks have failed to score a try in 80 minutes of rugby since 2014.
