Well done Kiwis. Those Irishmen were never going to beat that 28 year winning streak at Eden Park. Looked like they'd been on the Guinness for a week!

Well, I'm happy to say that I was totally wrong. I thought Ireland was going to win this one.

But the All Blacks forwards showed up, their debutants kept their heads and justified their call-ups, and some of the old heads showed us again why they're still in the squad.

Let's see how the Irish respond.

Congratulations and well done to the All Blacks. They deserved to win. The English Referee was determinedly hard on Ireland. The result shows that Ireland have to give the younger players a start (send home Johnny Sexton etc), because it'll be the youngsters who'll be going to the World Cup..
