Sam Whitelock's midfield backdoor wrap with Rieko Ioane that set Leicester Fainga'anuku away in the build up to Jordie Barrett's first half try was case in point. Firmly in control, leading 28-5 following five first half tries, the All Blacks put the foot on the throat in the second half. All Blacks 42 (Ardie Savea 2, Jordie Barrett, Sevu Reece, Quinn Tupaea, Pita Gus Sowakula tries; Barrett 6 cons)Ireland 19 (Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Bundee Aki tries; Joey Carbery 2 cons)HT: 28-5
