Dreams and songs to sing.
Ireland made history on Saturday night, defeating the mighty All Blacks on their home turf for the first time in history with a 16-9 win at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
The win ensured Ireland maintained their incredible run of form at the Aviva, winning every single game since they were last defeated their by the All Blacks back in 2016, bringing their rise to the top full circle.
In that time Joe Schmidt’s men in green have defeated every single team in the top 10 of the World Rugby Rankings, winning all 11-games at the former Landsdowne Road.
In 2013 Ireland came very close to ending their All Blacks hoodoo, only for Ryan Crotty to score a last minute winner. This time the crowd were not going to let that happen – belting out the Fields of Athenry in the final moments, before the New Zealand finally made an error to hand victory to Ireland.
