Ireland end the All Black's reign in Chicago

Ireland have shocked the rugby world, breaking a 101 year drought to beat the All Blacks 40-29 in Chicago on Sunday morning (NZ time), putting an end to their 18-game winning streak.

The All Blacks were first across the line through George Moala, capitalising on a Waisake Naholo break to take an early lead.

Ireland responded after a Joe Moody sinbinning with two of their own – rolling over a line-out drive before Jordi Murphy barrelled over from close range.

Halfback Conor Murray grabbed another before halftime, pouncing from the base of a ruck to catch the All Blacks defense unawares and give his side a commanding 25-8 lead going into the interval.

The All Blacks launched a second half comeback but it was too little too late, Robbie henshaw stealing a slice of history with a try with four minutes left to seal the win.
