All Blacks Win First Test Against Ireland

The All Blacks have beaten Ireland 42-19 in their first test at Auckland's Eden Park on Saturday night.

As was expected, it was a tough physical match early on, with the Irish getting the first try in the 5th minute to winger Keith Earls. The All Blacks did not help themselves with handling errors, but got on the board in the 20th minute with a try to Jordie Barrett, and again the the 29th minute when Sevu Reece picked up a loose ball to run 75 metres untouched. Second five Quinn Tupaea added the third try off a Beauden Barrett grubber kick, and Ardie Savea pounced on a loose ball in the Irish goal to see the All Blacks go to half time with four tries and a 28-5 lead.

The Irish struck back early in the second half with a try to centre Garry Ringrose to reduce the margin to 28-12, but Ardie Savea then struck back for the All Blacks with his second. The Irish held a territorial and possession advantage for the match, but handling errors saw the ball lost over the line twice when scoring, and strong defense and scrummaging from the All Blacks proved the difference.

New Zealand All Blacks: 42  

Tries: Jordie Barrett, Sevu Reece, Quinn Tupaea, Ardie Savea 2, Pita Gus Sowakula, Conversions: J Barrett 6 

Ireland: 19 

Tries: Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki, Conversions: Joey Carberry 2

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

Hooker Danes Coles is in the reserves, as is halfback Finlay Christie due to Brad Weber's head knock against Italy last week.

New Zealand All Blacks:

All Blacks Get Win Over Italy.

The All Blacks have secured a 47-9 win over Italy to continue their unbeaten run on the Northern tour. Both hooker Dane Coles and his replacement Asafo Aumua scored two tries each out of the total seven for the match, but it was again a disjointed effort with many errors. Italy put up spirited defense for much of the match, but only managed three penalties for the match to first five Paolo Garbisi. The All Blacks will face a greater challenge this week against Ireland, and could potentially have halfback Brad Weber unavailable after he left the field with a head knock.

New Zealand All Blacks: 47 

Tries: Finlay Christie, Dane Coles 2, Sevu Reece, Asafo Aumua 2, Hoskins Sotutu, Conversions: Richie Mo'unga 6 

Italy: 9 

Penalties: Paolo Garbisi 3

All Blacks Beat Ireland To Advance To Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals.

The New Zealand All Blacks have beaten Ireland 46-14 to advance to the semi-finals of the 2109 Rugby World Cup where they will play England at Yokohama on Saturday 26th October at 9pm.

New Zealand led 22-0 at halftime after two tries to halfback Aaron Smith and one to Beauden Barrett.
They extended the lead out to 34-0 in the second half after tries to hooker Codie Taylor in the 48th minute and Matt Todd in the 62nd minute, and it wasn't until the 69th minute that Ireland got on the scoreboard with a try to Robbie Henshaw.
New Zealand replied with a try to winger George Bridge in the 73rd minute to make it 41-7, and Ireland then received a penalty try after flanker Matt Todd was adjudged offside under the posts when Ireland were driving for the line in the 77th minute.
Todd was given a yellow card for offense, but the 14 man All Black side was able to have the final say with replacement Jordie Barrett scoring in the final minute of the match.

All Blacks: 46

Tries: Aaron Smith 2, Beauden Barrett, Codie Taylor, George Bridge, Matt Todd, Jordie Barrett.
