Beauden Barrett has been named man of the match. Wife Hannah is going off in the crowd.

1:08am: 77 mins – NZ 41 IRE 14

Penalty try!What? Matt Todd gives away what’s been awarded as a penalty try, taking the man as he tries to score against the upright.

Entering from the side is the call, possibly a yellow card. It is. The All Blacks will finish with 14 men.

Conversion is good.

TRY!!!George Bridge gets the sixth! Savea makes a break, offloading to Coles, who offloads to Bridge and he scores! Savea starting it with the turnover and the All Blacks again score from nothing.

Mo’unga with the kick, and he won’t miss those.

TRY!!!Ireland are on the board as Henshaw makes up for his mistake. Ireland go short from the back of the scrum, as Carberry feeds Henshaw to dive in and score under the posts.

The conversion is good from Carberry.

Stockdale breaks down the left wing and Ireland are camped on the All Blacks’ tryline! Carberry tries to run the ball in on the 11th phase but is tackled.

Ireland with the advantage as the kick goes through from Carberry – Henshaw beats everyone but knocks the ball on trying to ground it!

We go back for the penalty!

12:56am: 66 mins – NZ 34 IRE 0

Ireland penalty, Carberry’s kick isn’t out – but the chasers are quick. Lienert-Brown throws a pass back to Barrett in the in-goal, and he somehow avoids the chasing pack to get out of trouble. 

The ball is cleared for an Ireland lineout.

12:53am: 63 mins – NZ 34 IRE 0

TRY!!!Todd scores! Mo’unga goes to the air from the back of the drive, and Reece soars to take it. Reece cuts inside – taking three defenders with him, before Todd is in as the first man to pick the ball up and score! Five tries for the All Blacks!

Mo’unga with the kick, this one just shaves the left post though. Jordie Barrett replaces Sevu Reece.

Rory Best leaves the pitch for – what will likely be – his last time in the Irish jersey, standing ovation for one of the game’s great players.

12:50am: 61 mins – NZ 29 IRE 0

Short break in play. Matt Todd replaces Retallick. That’ll mean he goes to seven, Barrett to lock, Savea back to six.

Ireland scrum. Murray feeds. Penalty advantage, Owens calls it, but the kick doesn’t find touch – straight to Bridge!

Bridge kicks back and Ireland are going backwards. Beauden Barrett gets the ball and tries the up and under, and Ireland are racing back!

They get there though, Ireland clear into touch to get out of danger. Aaron Smith goes off, Perenara replaces him.

Aaron Smith kicks through as the ball dribbles into touch in the corner. Huge pressure on this throw for Best, and Ireland win it.

The forwards again making some good metres, through 11 phases. Retallick is penalised for incorrect entry of the ruck though!

Great defence from Ireland.
