Match Commentary

81'40-29 End of second half
80'The full time hooter sounds, the All Blacks give the ball some width but they concede another penalty. AND THAT IS IT. IRELAND HAVE BEATEN THE ALL BLACKS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY. 111 YEARS, 29 MEETINGS. FIRST EVER WIN OVER NEW ZEALAND.
79'Carbery lines up the penalty. Misses. But it won't matter with a minute to go. I can't believe my eyes.
