New Zealand 22-32 Ireland: Sensational Ireland claim remarkable 2-1 series

A week on from their first victory over the All Blacks on Kiwi soil, Ireland produced a near-faultless first half to open up a 19-point lead in Wellington.

Three tries in 20 minutes saw New Zealand roar back after the break to reduce the arrears to three.

However replacement Rob Herring’s score restored Ireland’s breathing space.

The series win will go down as one of Ireland’s greatest rugby achievements, against a side that tormented them in an utterly one-sided rivalry for over a century.
