    FT: Ireland 14-46 New Zealand

    So it will be an England versus New Zealand semi-final next weekend.

    Excited much?

    This has probably been Ireland's best performance of the tournament but it's been nowhere near good enough.

    Ireland 14-46 New Zealand

    And that's it.

    A masterclass from New Zealand.

    It looked so easy but it was absolute pinpoint accuracy from New Zealand. They do the basics so well.

    They've been fantastic today. On today's performance you'd have to find a big risk taker to say they wouldn't win their third title. They've been ruthless today.

  5. Try - Ireland 14-46 New Zealand

    Jordie Barrett

    From one Barrett to another, Beauden tees up Jordie...

    Ireland's defence is all over the place and the full-back can pick out his younger brother with a long pass to the flank.

    Jordie Barrett has all the time in the world to dive over the line in spectacular fashion.

    Ireland 14-41 New Zealand

    Handshakes in the New Zealand coaching box. Job done for Steve Hansen's team.

  7. Post update

    Ireland 14-41 New Zealand

    The 14 men of New Zealand are straight back at it. A good line-out win close to the Ireland line and the forwards go rolling over the whitewash with ball in hand.

    But they're held up. An All Blacks put-in five out.

    I'm not sure it was a definite try because New Zealand had another 14 players around defending. Ireland might have got lucky there.

  9. Sin-bin

    Ireland 14-41 New Zealand

    And that will see Matt Todd sit out the remainder of this one.

  10. Penalty try - Ireland 14-41 New Zealand

    Great play through the phases from Ireland and CJ Stander looks to have a dig at the line, but he's stopped illegally by Matt Todd and Nigel Owens says that's enough for a penalty try.

  11. Post update

    Ireland 7-41 New Zealand

    Ireland throw bodies into another attack, taking it within touching distance of the New Zealand line.

    Early on in the game Ireland were clearing the ball with the boot but they're chasing the game now. Ultimately a quick turnover with the Irish defence all over the show because they'd been attacking for five or six phases by that stage meant a try was there.

  13. Converted try - Ireland 7-41 New Zealand

    George Bridge (con Richie Mo'unga)

    Party poopers.

    New Zealand capitalise on a broken line after Ardie Savea's dart from the ruck.

    Dane Coles doesn't quite have the legs to carry over himself but does have the vision and skill to execute a lovely one-handed offload for George Bridge to canter over.

    Ireland 7-34 New Zealand

    That's got the Ireland fans singing in Tokyo. Ten minutes of their World Cup left to enjoy.

    It's the same move from a try Ireland scored against New Zealand in Chicago a couple of years ago.

  16. Converted try - Ireland 7-34 New Zealand

    Robbie Henshaw (con Joey Carbery)

    Robbie Henshaw does get his try!

    A wonderful shift of weight to throw off his marker and quick feet to accelerate under the sticks from the centre.

    Nate H: It’s now a question of leaving with dignity for the Ireland. You can marvel at the skills of NZ but the Irish decision making has been questionable at best. As has their execution.

    The ball couldn't have popped up any nicer for him. That doesn't normally happen with those little chip passes.

    When you create those chance against New Zealand you have to take them.

  19. Post update

    Ireland 0-34 New Zealand

    Oh my!

    Ireland are in, but Robbie Henshaw drops it over the line.

    It's a wonderful grubber into the centre's path, but Henshaw never got a hold of the ball as he looked to dive on to it beyond the New Zealand try-line.
