It was a dumb decision to kick the while Cheslin was running to charge down the kick.

Nigel_72 282 days ago

So with 3 minutes to go, NZ 4 points ahead, and the ABs in possession at a ruck a few metres inside the Irish half, the NZ halfback decides now is the time to give the ball back to Ireland - to give the opponent one last crack.
The low-percentage box kick was what Ireland were hoping for from Smith.
NZ could have retained the ball hitting up runners, passing to put pressure on the Irish defence, which in turn may even have forced the Irish to concede a penalty.
Instead, it was Ireland who held the ball for remainder of the game (deep in NZ's half), until Sam Whitelock's turnover.
Perhaps someone can explain to me the genius of Smith's decision.
Tell me why I am wrong.

YES to Southern Hemisphere.
Well done All Blacks and Ireland. It is tough play, when one has to rely on an "impartial" ref.
Let's us respect each others teams!
But hej - I am looking forward again to a Springbok - All Black final!

I acknowledge that the best team won on the night but we no longer respect Zealand rugby like we did we will make life on the pitch he’ll for yous in the future the ref was poor ground rugby has no place in the modern game. Explain why players are allowed to go to ground in multiplayer and why Ireland were penalised in the scrum area and it was the NZ props on the ground. Early penalties hurt Ireland crazy referees

Once again Ireland came into a world cup as No 1 and once again the QF curse could not be broken... To all the Irish fans - You'll never participate in a Rugby World Cup final you'll only watch it on the tv. Thanks for coming - at least this time you do not have to travel so far home but its still empty handed.

I look forward to Nick Bishop yet again telling us how NZ's defence is it's weakness. Those wide turnovers were gold...black gold.

Who Will Win?

This is the big one: Ireland vs New Zealand in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup.

Ireland arguably enter this game as the slight favourites, after topping the ‘pool of death’ ahead of South Africa. However, this game is really a coinflip and could be decided by one moment of magic.

With Ireland looking to prove why they’re the number one team in the world and New Zealand aiming to show that they should still be feared on the international stage, this is a game where both teams will leave everything on the line… and we can’t wait to watch it unfold.

Think you know which way that Ireland vs New Zealand will go? Vote in our poll below.

Head-to-Head

New Zealand hold a winning record against every team they’ve ever played. However, Ireland are one of the few teams that can genuinely claim to be their equals. After all, in the past five games between Ireland and the All Blacks, Ireland have won three while New Zealand have only won two.

But, Ireland’s 2-1 series victory over the All Blacks in New Zealand in 2022 will undoubtedly provide Ian Foster’s men with plenty of motivation ahead of this gargantuan matchup.

Team Form

reland are not only the number one team in the world, but they’re also the world’s most in-form side. After all, they’ve won all of their last 17 test matches.

By contrast, although New Zealand have scored more than 70 points in all of their last three games, they lost to France in the opening game of the Rugby World Cup and finished Pool A in second place. They also lost their final warmup game against South Africa at Twickenham.

Below our team form guide, you can see in-depth stats about how the two sides have performed in their last five games, including stats about the number of tries they’ve scored, their overall points difference and the number of times they’ve scored the first try.

Player Head-to-Head

The Ireland and New Zealand teams are packed with star players who are more than capable of dominating a game on their own.

Other Fixtures

Ireland vs New Zealand is arguably the pick of this weekend’s Rugby World Cup fixtures. However, every quarter-final is being played this weekend. Check out the latest fixtures and results below.

Ireland vs New Zealand 2023: Detailed Match Preview

On Saturday 14th October, 2023, Ireland will face New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals at the Stade de France in Paris.

Arguably the tie of the Rugby World Cup so far, neither of these two sides will fancy leaving the tournament at the quarter-final stage. This is particularly true for Ireland, who are currently the number one side in the world but have never made it past the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup.

However, head coach Andy Farrell seems to have put many of his side’s mental scars behind them, and they’ll enter this game against New Zealand as favourites, particularly as they beat them 2-1 in a series in New Zealand last year.

For their part, New Zealand will be aiming to show they’re still a dominant force in world rugby. Recent defeats against France and South Africa have dampened expectations somewhat, but it takes a brave person to bet against the All Blacks in a Rugby World Cup quarter-final.

On paper, this is a game against two evenly matched teams. We can’t wait to see how it pans out. Let us know what you think will happen in the comments.

When was the first Ireland vs New Zealand game? When was the first Ireland vs New Zealand game?

The first Ireland vs New Zealand game took place all the way back in 1905. The clash took place at Lansdowne Road, Dublin and New Zealand ran out 15-0 winners.

Have Ireland ever played against New Zealand at the Rugby World Cup? Have Ireland ever played against New Zealand at the Rugby World Cup?

Yes. Ireland and New Zealand have clashed twice before at the Rugby World Cup. Back in 1995, New Zealand defeated Ireland 43-19 during the pool stage. Following this, the All Blacks defeated Ireland 46-14 in the quarter-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Have Ireland ever beaten New Zealand? Have Ireland ever beaten New Zealand?

Yes. Ireland have played New Zealand 36 times since 1905. New Zealand have won 30 of these meetings, while Ireland have won five and one has ended in a draw. Interestingly though, Ireland have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides. In fact, all five of Ireland’s wins have come since 2016.
