New Zealand vs Ireland rugby: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream and teams for 2nd test | The Sun

IRELAND will be on a revenge mission when they take on New Zealand in the second of three tests.

The All Blacks asserted their dominance at Eden Park last week – cruising to a 42-19 win in Auckland.

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.
