Ireland vs New Zealand 14:00 WET (UTC +0) Location: Aviva Stadium, Dublin Referee: Nigel Owens (Wales) The last game of the season, the last game of the year for both national sides. Ireland have come off a mixed Autumn Tour so far with a big victory against Samoa which included 5 tries to none for the home team and 40-9 full time despite a diminished group for the visitors with key injuries, still a fine result; while Ireland in turn received a 4 tries to none punishment at the hands of the Australian Wallabies in a frustrating effort with many good phases but little result the very next week. New Zealand, needing no introduction to this thread, are still the All-Mighty in terms of the win-loss column, but it isn't pedantic to mention they've shown signs of struggle in many regards so far in their Tour up North, with on the surface 7-point then 8-point victories in Europe during their first 2 confrontations in Paris then London, their most narrow margins this year. Both Ireland and New Zealand will undoubtedly seek a stronger showing as neither is truly satisfied with the way things went a week prior. Hopefully an elegant match to behold, with two back-lines that have shown intent and quality; let's wish a great match to both sides, full of spectacle on either halves of the field, and may the best team win, always.
