The42 Rugby Show: Eddie O'Sullivan and Murray Kinsella dissect Ireland's bruising defeat to the All Blacks

We dissect Saturday’s absorbing clash with the world champions.

AFTER THE HISTORIC win in Chicago, Ireland failed to make it two wins in a row against the All Blacks on Saturday afternoon in Dublin.

But they had every chance to stun the visitors again. Joe Schmidt’s side had the lion’s share of possession but failed to score a try.

New Zealand — like at Soldier Field — were ill-disiplined, while the match officials’ decisions came under huge scrutiny.

Former Ireland head coach Eddie O’Sullivan joined The42‘s Murray Kinsella to reflect on the defeat to New Zealand and look forward to this weekend’s November series finale against Australia.
