All Blacks batter Ireland 46-14 to reach World Cup semis

Graphic All Blacks v Ireland statistics for the 2019 Rugby World Cup All Blacks vs Ireland by the numbers

Ireland's miserable World cup record goes on and Hansen was seemingly mindful of that coming into today's quarter-final.

It is the Wallabies' equal lowest ranking since World Rugby's ratings system was introduced in 2003.

Ireland is yet to win a World Cup knockout match after eight attempts.

New Zealand made a massive 461 metres with the ball to Ireland's 251, 13 clean breaks to their opponent's two, beat 29 defenders compared to 11 and made more offloads than their Irish counterparts (16-2). Those of us who have been around for long enough understand the game is bigger than everybody else.

"The game has been professional now for a while, but if you look back in time teams always shared those moments after the test matches together and that's something that's really important we don't lose".

Whether deployed at fly-half or full-back, Beauden Barrett is a sensation. "Mate, you've been a legend of the game so thank you very much for all you've given".

His first-half try took his total tally for the All Blacks to 35, more than any other current New Zealand player, and the 28-year-old also set up younger brother Jordie with a pin-point pass to cross late on.

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

England turned the match with two tries inside three minutes midway through the first half as May finished a good move for the first, then grabbed a second after Henry Slade intercepted on his own 22, galloped clear then cleverly kicked perfectly into the path of his galloping left winger.

He needed seven pitches to retire the side in the first before running into trouble with two outs in the second. NY manager Aaron Boone said Green is comfortable in that situation and is throwing the ball well.

AP Top 25: LSU jumps to No. 2; Ohio State at 4
Burrow completed 12 straight passes during one stretch against Florida, which ranks as the third-longest streak in school history. It was a big night in Death Valley last Saturday as the LSU Tigers beat the then #7 ranked Florida Gators by two touchdowns.

Michigan WR Ronnie Bell suffers crushing game-tying TD drop
Then Michigan's defense gave up a 44-yard run by Ricky Slade and was penalized twice for offsides, digging itself a 14-0 hole. That finally ended as they drove 75 yards as running back Zach Charbonnet ran 12-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 21-7.

To have any chance of beating the All Blacks, Ireland needed to keep mistakes to a bare minimum but instead the team was making far too many; missed tackles and handling errors inside the opening period were handing New Zealand the initiative.

"I think they were just really, really clinical, they didn't let us get on the front foot". It's going to be another toughie against England as well.

"The circumstances have ended up that we played someone we respect a lot tonight".

He was joined in the New Zealand pack by the returning Brodie Retallick, who only played 30 minutes in the pool stage but has 78 caps in the bank and is a former World Rugby Player of the Year.

Australia looked unsafe early on but England seized the advantage with May's rapid try double.

Aaron Smith's two tries drove the merciless New Zealand a step closer to an unprecedented third-straight World Cup title with a 46-14 quarter-final victory over Ireland.

New Zealand's Codie Taylor (L) scores a try during the Rugby World Cup quarter-final against Ireland at the Tokyo Stadium on Saturday.
