Monumental Ireland claim All Blacks scalp in Dublin

"This time of year particularly, we're coming to the end of our season and we've got to find ways to get energised and play with real goal".

Peter O'Mahony made a heroic try-saving intervention before Barrett's penalty set up a tense finish, but Ireland's backs-to-the-wall effort got the job done to spark wild celebrations in Dublin.

The 2016 win at Soldier Field in Chicago will be foremost in the minds of most Irish supporters this weekend but that was superseded two weeks later when the All Blacks exacted a swift and bad revenge at the Aviva Stadium.

"So you know that if you don't match that, with the talent they've got across the pitch, that it's going to be tough".

Schmidt himself referred to the closing stages of that 2013 loss on Thursday, although he has now narrowed his focus to the heart-stopping finish when Ireland lost possession with 29 seconds of normal time remaining.

In the early going after the restart, Ireland's lineout was a successful one.

"A hundred seconds of pretty agonising viewing for us".

It was a bruising first half that contained a bevy of penalty concessions on the All Blacks' behalf, but Ireland were unable to force their hand on the scoreboard, holding a slim three point lead at half time.

Brewers OF Christian Yelich named 2018 National League MVP
Cubs infielder Javier Baez placed second, with Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado finishing in bronze-medal position. Betts led the majors in batting average, slugging percentage, and ranked second in OBP, OPS and extra-base hits (84).

"It's a massive game and something we are looking forward to", said Best after his captain's run at the Aviva Stadium.

Ireland are without four key players for Saturday's match with scrum-half Conor Murray, centre Robbie Henshaw and flanker Sean O'Brien joined on the injury list by Dan Leavy, who was originally named to start. It's winning and they'll punish you. But probably the area of their game that doesn't get as much credit is their physicality.

Ireland initially looked to build on their lead, but soon found themselves forced onto the back foot as the All Blacks looked to click into gear.

"You've got to be confident when you've had the success that this team has had".

"He's a Kiwi, he's a New Zealander, he will be beyond busting to beat these boys again", said Cave.

"New Zealand are renowned for the style of rugby they play, and one to 15 they can all play and put people into space and through holes".

The penalty allowed New Zealand get Ioane into the game on an attacking footing and Marmion did brilliantly to hunt him down after Dane Coles' throw over the top caught the Irish napping at the tail.

"I think it's a big call and a statement of intent from Joe Schmidt that Marmion now is his No 2 guy", he said of Marmion who has been picked to start ahead of McGrath at the Aviva Stadium.
