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.

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

All Blacks Win Against South Africa

In the 100th test match between the sides, the New Zealand All Blacks have beaten South Africa 19-17 in Townsville on Saturday night. In a closely fought match, it was the boot of Jordie Barrett who secured the victory with a 78th minute penalty kick. The South African tactics of continually kicking for position or high balls worked to some degree, with their try to Sbu Nkosi coming off a dropped ball near the line by winger George Bridge. 

The All Blacks conceded 23 turnovers to eight from South Africa, carried for 378 metres to South Africa's 236, passed the ball 141 times to South Africa's 65, made 12 offloads to one, kicked 18 times to South Africa's 38 and missed 14 tackles to South Africa's 23.

New Zealand All Blacks: 19

Try: Will Jordan, Conversion: Jordie Barrett, Penalties: Jordie Barett 4
