Irish Rugby TV go some post-match reaction from Ireland’s Devin Toner and Simon Zebo and New Zealand hooker Dane Coles after tonight’s bruising GUINNESS Series clash at the Aviva Stadium.
‘A tough one to take, it probably proves why they’re the best team in the world at the minute. Two weeks ago, we put a lot of pressure on them, and we didn’t put as much pressure on them this week. When they got those breaks and the passes stuck, they got in with a few tries’ – Devin Toner
‘All credit to New Zealand, they’re a quality outfit. You could tell there was an extra pep in their step. That first five minutes, we kinda sat back off them and gave them too much respect, waiting to see what was going to happen. We’ll learn from it and come back better’ – Simon Zebo
‘It would’ve been nice to have another one, a decider I suppose. Just proud of the way we performed tonight. I thought our defence was pretty good, our discipline probably let us down but it was pretty satisfying to turn the result (from Chicago) around’ – Dane Coles
