Zapping World Fifteen Playing the World Cup in France will be history for Algeria, says Sofiane Chellat

XV of Clover will take on the All Blacks tomorrow in Dunedin (09:05 French time) in the second Test match between the two countries. In the first meeting last weekend, the All Blacks knocked out the Irish 42 to 19. Jonathan Sexton’s team were unreal as they had plenty of chances.

In a press conference, the Irish coach, Andy Farrell, returned specifically to this stage and the period of emptiness his team had experienced.

“We had a lot of chances to score, but it’s crucial to take the chances that we get.”

“We had some good periods, we built up, and then at times, we went through it all of a sudden. You miss (a tackle) and you’re back under pressure.”

But the coach also used strong words to highlight his desire for the players to give everything they have to give the best possible performance last week and do better than last week in the hopes of winning.

“We’ll see if we have the courage to withstand the pressure that’s being put on us. It’s going to be absolutely crucial that we stay calm enough to develop the game we want to play and do it better than last week.”

A hard-fought victory for the Irish against the confident All Blacks, their unbeaten run at home now stretches to 47 games.

In short

The Clover XV will take on the All Blacks in Dunedin tomorrow in the second Test match between the two countries. In a press conference, Irish coach Andy Farrell went back to key points from the last match and used strong words.
