New Zealand vs Ireland player ratings: Beirne 10, O’Mahony 9

New Zealand vs Ireland player ratings as Andy Farrell’s men recorded a famous first win on All Blacks soil.

he All Blacks were permanently reduced to 14-men when Angus Ta’avao was shown red on 31 minutes in a bizarrely undisciplined first half in Dunedin.

Two Andrew Porter tries combined with the reliable boot of Johnny Sexton secured the victory.

The series will be decided in next week’s winner-takes-all meeting in Wellington.

DID YOU KNOW? Having never beaten New Zealand before 2016, Ireland have now won four of the last seven meetings between the sides
