Rugby New Zealand vs Ireland: Start Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News for 2nd Test


Ireland will be on a revenge mission when they take on New Zealand in the second of the three Tests.

The All Blacks asserted their dominance at Eden Park last week with a 42-19 victory in Auckland.

A 70-minute half from Test Pitt newcomer Gus Sovacula put the icing on the cake for the hosts.

However, the Irish can take some confidence from a second-half surge that saw Ian Foster’s All Blacks concede two early penalties.

Also, the TMO twice disallowed Ireland’s efforts, which would have narrowed the gap further.
