All Blacks Suffer First Loss On Northern Tour

The All Blacks have lost their first match on the Northern Tour, going down 29-20 to Ireland. Ireland scored three tries to two and dominated much of the territory and possession in the match, with the All Blacks forced to make 158 first half tackles to Ireland's 37, and 235 total for the match to Ireland's 101. The All Blacks lost Beauden Barrett to a head knock, and Anton Lienert-Brown to a dislocated shoulder, and the cause was not helped when hooker Codie Taylor spent 10 minutes in the sin-bin for a high tackle in the first half.


New Zealand All Blacks: 20 

Tries: Codie Taylor, Will Jordan, Conversions: Jordie Barrett 2, Penalties: Jordie Barrett 2

Ireland: 29 

Tries: James Lowe, Ronan Kelleher, Caelan Doris, Conversions: Johnny Sexton, Penalties: Joey Carbery 3, Sexton
