Emotional Best Thanks Schmidt & Supporters After Final Ireland Game

Emotional Best Thanks Schmidt & Supporters After Final Ireland Game

They will now play either New Zealand or Ireland, who meet in Tokyo later on Saturday, in next weekend's semi-finals.

Certainly England will provide a better test for the holders, having earlier thrashed Australia 40-16 in the first quarter-final in Oita.

Things could get worse for the Wallabies with eighth placed France a chance of overtaking them if they can spring an upset against Wales on Sunday.

After scrumhalf Smith scored his first try in the 14th minute following a sustained buildup, the All Blacks seized on two Johnny Sexton errors to put the game beyond doubt before halftime.

"That is as good as I've seen New Zealand play since the last World Cup".

New Zealand are going for their third straight title and they brutally dismissed a misfiring Ireland side who have now lost in the quarter-finals seven times.

New Zealand followed up a ideal lineout with a flawless maul, then an inch-perfect cross-field and a ideal ruck to allow Matt Todd to score.

"It's been an emotional week for my family", Beauden said, tearing up, as he collected his man-of-the-match award.

Before the rally, Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir said endorsements this past week from Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. But by December, Weaver predicted, Sanders' health scare will be forgotten. "And that's what we need to remember".


It wasn't long before the All Blacks made their early pressure count, as Aaron Smith darted through an opening in the Ireland defense the instant it appeared and went over for the opening try.

Eddie Jones' England moved up to second with their win over the Wallabies on 89.74 points.

"We did what's needed. We looked shell-shocked for large parts of that game", Wood said. "We wanted to play the game at our pace not theirs, and we did that in the second half". The support that I've got from home, from the fans when we're at home and when we're away. "It's so disappointing", said a disconsolate Cheika, a former team-mate of Jones at Sydney's Randwick club.

They were ranked No.1 coming into the tournament, but were never in the contest in the quarterfinal.

Savea, Sam Cane and co will pose a huge test for England's young flankers Tom Curry and Sam Underhill - the "Kamikaze Kids" who underpinned England's victory over Australia by winning the battle against David Pocock and Michael Hooper.

Henry Slade then intercepted the ball on halfway and raced towards the try-line before chipping into space with a kick that was deftly gathered by the England wing. I'm really proud of him, they broke the track record, all four horses... he actually started from barrier 12 so had to do a bit more work than some of the others. But England but prop Kyle Sinckler then blasted through and, and after Farrell's goalkicking stretched the lead, Anthony Watson finished it in style with a the fourth try.

Think of England facing New Zealand at the World Cup and most - at least those old enough - will remember a Jonah Lomu-inspired All Blacks side running in six tries on the way to a 45-29 victory in the 1995 semi-final.
