Wigan rugby league legend Andy Farrell inspires Ireland's win over All Blacks

The game inevitably opened up and New Zealand's backline became more of a feature but Ireland, saved again by O'Mahony before he limped off to a hero's ovation on the hour, survived the onslaught.

New Zealanders have been quick to find a way to celebrate Ireland's historic Test win in Dublin, highlighting that the All Blacks loss was at least masterminded by a Kiwi.

Meanwhile a number of All Blacks are on their way back to New Zealand.

Hansen hailed Ireland as the "No.1 team in the world" at the Aviva Stadium.

He said "it would be churlish to dispute. that the superpower of northern hemisphere rugby now deserves to be considered the best team on the planet". "We're all going to be making announcements shortly", Hansen said. Against one of the best if not the best defensive lineouts in the world he was nearly inch ideal aided by the giant lock Devin Toner. "I wouldn't see any point doing that".

"We've got some of the best players in the world who just play what they see in front of them", Coles said.

'Ireland are the world's best, then.

Ireland prevented the All Blacks from scoring a try in their 16-9 victory on Saturday - a feat which has been achieved just six times in 243 Tests this century.

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has indicated he, too, will make a call on whether to continue after next year's World Cup in Japan, or return home to New Zealand, by the end of this month. "He is doing a super job and have really enjoyed the 2 1/2 years".

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen told media after the match that the win installed Ireland as World Cup favourites. Not only was it a pre-planned move but the purposeful Jacob Stockdale was still prepared to give it a go, despite having nearly presented Kieran Read with a free gift from a less successful chip a few minutes earlier.

That was as close as New Zealand would come and Stockdale quickly made up for his error as a brilliant lineout move - a Joe Schmidt special - switched play back onto the blindside to put the Ulster winger into space to chip through and collect.

"We've got a bit of work to do over summer - we're not going to fix it in a week, but we will fix it".

"Everyone's trying to be the best, everyone's striving to meet expectations. He doesn't necessarily look very fast but you make your own luck with those chances".
