    FULL-TIME: NEW ZEALAND 46-14 IRELAND. Brilliant game for New Zealand and Ireland bow out from another World Cup in the quarter-finals. It was a clinical performance from the All Blacks and they made some difficult moves look easy as they progress into the semi-finals to face England.

  • 79'

  • 78'

    Perenara gets the ball after the lineout and he is taken over the line by the maul but is held up so it will be a scrum for the All Blacks.

  • 77'

    PENALTY TRY, IRELAND! 41-14: Todd gets the yellow card and it is a harsh call from the referee. Stander the man who had the ball but it is a harsh call from the referee to give the yellow card and the penalty try.

  • 69'

    TRY, IRELAND, HENSHAW! 34-5: Redemption for Henshaw as he takes the ball over the line through the gap in the defence. The hole opened up after the scrum and Henshaw does well to score the try.

  • 67'

    NO TRY! Nice little kick from Carbery and Henshaw loses the ball over the try line. This sums up the game for Ireland today. New Zealand will have to defend a scrum now on their 5m line.

  • 66'

    We are in the final 15 minutes of the game and Ireland are playing for some pride now. They are looking for their first try as they attack.

  • 65'

    TRY, NEW ZEALAND, TODD! 34-0: They make it look so easy, Mo'unga with an accurate cross kick to Reece and he then passes the ball to Perenara who gives it to Todd who takes it over the line. Brilliant team try.

  • 59'

    Ireland win a penalty from a fantastic scrum and the changes seem to be having an impact. Sexton kicks it but does not find touch. The second time today he has not found touch.

  • 58'

    Retallick is being replaced by Todd and he has had a good game so far as he comes back from an injury.

  • 43'

    The TMO has confirmed that Read tackled a player without the ball, so that will be a penalty. But the referee explains that the penalty could be reversed if the TMO confirms an Irish mistake.

  • 43'

    HALF-TIME: NEW ZEALAND 22-0 IRELAND. The final penalty goes the way of the All Blacks and they have not conceded any points in the first half. Ireland have made mistakes and paid for them as New Zealand have managed to score three tries to end the first half on a strong note.

    Ireland have a scrum in their own half and New Zealand will look to attack. Scott Barrett has come on for Cane for New Zealand.

Reece kicks the ball through and Barrett runs through to score the try. Good communication from the referee with the captains and the TMO. Another try for New Zealand.

  • 30'

    Ireland manage to turn the ball over and they are working it through a few phases. But they are finding it difficult to get out of their own half.

  • 29'

    It is great listening to Smith marshaling his players around him. New Zealand have looked a lot more composed as the half has gone on.

  • 26'

    Healy looks to run through but the referee blows his whistle and stops him. New Zealand are looking calm and collected with the ball in hand. One gets the feeling that Ireland have to score next to stay in the game.

  • 14'

    TRY, NEW ZEALAND, SMITH! 8-0: They just kept coming and asking the questions. A lot of the hard work done by the big men, Read and Whitelock, Aaron Smith runs through the gap in the end to complete a brilliant team try.

  • 12'

    Great support for both teams and Ireland have enjoyed a lot of the possession. New Zealand have not really seen much of the ball to get into their rhythm.

  • 11'

    Henshaw loses the ball forward after the lineout. New Zealand have managed to stop the Irish maul again. Good team effort from the All Blacks.

  • 5'

    A kick goes high in the Tokyo sky and the ball comes off an Irish head into the All Blacks hands. The move ends with a deliberate knock down from Stockdale and the referee says he is lucky to just concede a penalty. Stockdale almost thought it was an interception.
