QUIZ: Can You Name The Ireland 23 That Beat The All Blacks For the First Time?

After 29 meetings and 111 years of trying, Ireland finally claimed a men's senior international win over New Zealand to cherish.

Joe Schmidt's side joined the Ireland Women (2014) and Ireland Under-20s (2016) in the history books with a fantastic five-try performance against the reigning World champions in Chicago.

The statistics really back up what they achieved - that long-awaited maiden win after 111 years, joining France and South Africa as the only teams to ever score 40 points against New Zealand in a Test, Ireland's biggest ever points total against the All Blacks, and it was 12 full years since the Kiwi conceded so many points in an international.
