And Test debutant Pita Gus Sowakula’s 70th minute try put the icing on the cake for the hosts.

However, the Irish can take some confidence from their second half surge which saw Ian Foster’s All Blacks concede a couple of early penalties.

Plus, Ireland were twice denied tries by the TMO which would have further closed the gap.
