Rugby I be nuts about plug-ins, because they are awesome.
All Blacks humiliate Ireland 46-14 in the Rugby World Cup quarterfinals to set up a showdown with England.
OPINION:Ireland were dumped out of the Rugby World Cup as the All Blacks cruised to a 46-14 victory in the second quarterfinal in Yokohama on Saturday night.
Here are Ireland’s player ratings from yet another quarterfinal defeat. The Irish have still never won a knockout match at the World Cup. Read the All Blacks player ratings here.
Robert Kearney 4: Ran a poor support line when Ireland wasted their best try-scoring chance in the first half and the All Blacks then went the length of the field to score. It was effectively game over with the score becoming 22-0. Hauled off after half-time.
Keith Earls 5:Opposing winger George Bridge had no trouble eating metres down Ireland’s right flank and the All Blacks marched down there for their crucial second try which crushed Irish hopes.

Garry Ringrose 4:Suffered an early cut to the head and his defensive misread led to the break for Aaron Smith’s second try. Torrid night.
Robbie Henshaw 5:Came in for the suspended Bundee Aki and his lack of playing minutes showed as he found just tackling the All Blacks hard work. Bombed a certain try in the final quarter but touched down on the next play.
Jacob Stockdale 4:Strike winger had little impact and carelessly carried a kick into touch after half-time when Ireland needed a strong start to the second half.
