Pole View (iDalgo)
This is historic! Ireland managed to beat New Zealand 23-12 at home for the first time in their history. Thanks to this victory, the Irish return to winning ways in this series of Test matches, which ends on July 16 after the third match. The Irish got off to a strong start in this second test with prop Andrew Porter scoring the first try of the game in the third minute. The Irish continued to impose their unchallenged dominance over the All Blacks, forcing them into mistakes on numerous occasions. Two yellow cards and a red card for Angus Tawao cost the hosts dearly in the first half. The All Blacks still score a try late in the first half. But 15 men from the clubs exploded in the second half and Andrew Porter scored a brace in the 49th minute. The Irish capitalized on their numerical superiority and New Zealand’s inaccuracies thanks to Sexton’s penalties. A Will Jordan try late in the game was not enough to come back and the Irish won the game.
