Monumental Ireland claim All Blacks scalp in Dublin

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

The Irish, the All Blacks' closest pursuers in rugby's world rankings, produced a stunning second-half try and withheld a New Zealand onslaught over the final 25 minutes to secure a famous victory.

Considering New Zealand's high penalty count, they were fortunate to not see a man sent to the sin bin during that first half, while Ireland would have been disappointed to only enjoy a three-point lead at the break.

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.

New Zealand this year swept the home series against France, won another Rugby Championship, and overcame the English at Twickenham last weekend by blanking them for the last hour in the rain.

Best said Ireland were anticipating a bruising battle.

"You don't want to give the All Blacks the ball but McKenzie is short and yes he's courageous but if Sexton's kicking is on the money we can get up and that's where Murray".

On this occasion, Ireland were fully deserving of a morale-boosting victory as they produced a display of relentless phase play in the opening stanza, before relying on some vast and committed defence to see them home. They are incredibly physical in the tackle area, and the carry, and at the breakdown.

Johnny Sexton converted to open a ten point lead over the mighty visitors.

That was enough for Joe Schmidt's men to claim just their second victory over the All Blacks, after their triumph in Chicago two years ago, despite Barrett's late penalty.

Sexton then gave the hosts the lead just shy of the interval as they moved 9-6 ahead before Jacob Stockdale increased that buffer in the second period.

Stockdale snuck past Beauden Barrett up the left, but his kick was easily dealt with by Mo'unga. Luke McGrath pinned the All Blacks back in their own '22 and a poor Beauden Barrett pass forced Ben Smith on to the back foot and Stockdale forced him into touch. Instead, they managed history and the world awaits. Iain Henderson, 20. Josh van der Flier, 21.

NEW ZEALAND - D McKenzie (R Mo'unga 56); B Smith, J Goodhue, R Crotty (A Lienert-Brown 62), R Ioane; B Barrett, A Smith (TJ Peranara 58); K Tu'inukuafe (O Tuungafasi 47), C Taylor (D Coles 47), O Franks (N Laulala 47); B Retallick, S Whitelock; L Squire (S Barrett 32), A Savea (M Todd 74), K Read (capt).
