Rugby Rugby World Cup quarter-final: Ireland v New Zealand – All Blacks player profiles

Rugby This is one unbelievable plugin!!

15 Beauden Barrett(Hurricanes)
Age:28
Height:6’2”
Weight:91kg (14st, 5lbs)
Caps:80
The world’s best outhalf is now doing a pretty good job from fullback. Barrett’s lines of running are imperious – just don’t mention the fumble against Canada.

Sevu Reece(Crusaders)
Age:22
Height:5’9”
Weight:87kg (13st, 9lbs)
Caps:5
Destined for Connacht, Reece’s move to Galway fell through due to a domestic abuse case last year. An electric finisher, Ireland will look to test him in the air.

13

Jack Goodhue(Crusaders)
Age:24
Height:6’2”
Weight:98kg (15st 6lbs)
Caps:11
Goodhue’s selection in midfield ahead of Ryan Crotty and Sonny Bill Williams shows how highly thought of, and gifted he is. His match up with Garry Ringrose will be fascinating.

12Anton Lienert-Brown(Chiefs)
Age:24
Height:6’1”
Weight:86kg (13st 8lbs)
Caps:40
Lienert-Brown is now the All Blacks main man in midfield, and is a sublime creative presence at inside centre. He was superb against South Africa and Namibia and has a potent offload.

11George Bridge(Crusaders)
Age:24
Height:6’ 1”
Weight:96kg (15st 1lb)
Caps:7
Bridge sealed his place as a starter in Japan thanks to a four-try salvo against Tonga in September. He followed up by finishing off one of the tries of the tournament against the Springboks.

10

Richie Mo’unga(Crusaders)
Age
25
Height:5’8”
Weight:83kg (13st)
Caps:14
Steve Hansen’s decision to reshuffle looks justified – Mo’unga has been assured off the tee, in attack and he made the tackle of the tournament when reeling in Cheslin Kolbe.

9Aaron Smith(Highlanders)
Age:30
Height:
5’7”
Weight:83kg (13st 1lb)
Caps:89
Heads into this match as the supreme number nine on the pitch after wrestling his crown back from Conor Murray. Ireland must slow him and the ball down.
