Will highlights of the AB Ireland game be shown on FTA TV? And if not are there any (preferably long) highlights somewhere online?

Absolutely stunning first half by Ireland. Tadgh Beirne is a machine. In one 4 minute period with Ireland under the pump late on he turned them over 3 times. He was as near to being unplayable as you get. Ireland are a superbly coached team who do not worry about what the opposition bring - they have their way of playing the game with forwards and backs seeking space with all players comfortable in picking passes and supporting each other. They also use the short side cleverly to expose any weaknesses the opposition have in realigning. 

A lot has been said about previous Ireland teams peaking too early in the World cup cycle but this looks different to me. Also many question the logic of continuing to select Sexton but when you get a performance both attacking & defensively like to gave yesterday who wouldn't you select him. He is the best 10 in Ireland and frankly he is still the best 10 in Britain & Ireland.

Delighted for him to be putting in these performances and getting these results.

I’d be interested in knowing how Saracens managed to neutralise him so effectively whenever they’ve met, yet the ABs got nowhere near him.

I can’t see this all blacks coaching team surviving until the World Cup.  They again chose to ignore the most successful coach in super rugby in Scott Robertson and instead chose an outsider and a lesser preferred coach (with rugby journalists, pundits and fans) along with Brad Mooar.
Tadgh was immense yet again and his decision to more back to Ireland to achieve his international ambitions has been well and truly vindicated and justified.

Robertson is down the pecking order. Joe Schmidt is nailed on
I still wake up late at night and think of what might have been when tim stimpson hit that jammy penalty1

Two great games of rugby yday, the ab’s were so good with ball in hand. The pumas properly roughed up the aussies, their back row especially ran all over the aussies, the pumas scored 4 trys from kick chases

Well played the All Blacks. They stiffened their aerial defence and Frizzell showed up well. Also Mounga has to start at 10 on current form. The two newish props also did well. I can't really explain the Boks selection system when they drop last weeks star man Marx to the bench. They even kept him on the bench when the first choice pulled out due to injury & promoted their 3rd choice to start. By the time Marx came on after 30 minutes they were already 15 down.
