Ryder Cup 2020: Robert Karlsson named as European vice-captain

In a rematch of This epic Conflict in Dublin at 2018, New Zealand Match with Ireland in the World Cup quarter-final at Tokyo.

Even the Irish of course believed a 16-9 victory over the All Blacks in November of this past season and Joe Schmidts side could take some confidence from their record from New Zealand with 2 wins from their last four encounters.
Having said that Ireland have been disappointing since that Dublin so were outplayed by the Japanese in the group stage and masterclass. Even though New Zealand won their pool match that is against South Africa and have not dropped a Rugby World Cup game since 2007.
Steve Hansen has an embarrassment of riches to select from and has recalled Brodie Retallick to the row, along with Jack Goodhue and Anton Lienert-Brown from the midfield — the omission of Ryan Crotty is somewhat surprising.
With the exclusion of this frozen Bundee Aki, Joe Schmidt has brought Gary Ringrose to midfield, whilst opting in full-back and comes with a fully fit squad.
Among the crucial guys this weekend will probably be Ireland defence coach Andy Farrell, who has masterminded some excellent defensive schemes that have flummoxed the unflappable All Blacks over the past couple of years with the British & Irish Lions and Ireland.
Its Farrell, if there is one person in world rugby who will close down New Zealand.
A vital person on the area will likely be. Murray was near to crossing the line from Scotland, and has scored four tries against New Zealand.
I leaned him in that Scotland match anytime and I am backing his 2019 World Cup duck is broken by the Munster guy — 6/1??anytime tryscorer??seems a good bet.
My second bet of the game is New Zealand. After two weeks with no fixture a battle hardened Irish facet could catches early that the All Blacks.
Using no more than 12 points separating the sides at the last four experiences, games in the past few years involving the two sides have been tight affairs. But I expect New Zealand to have skill and enough nous to see a lively effort that is Irish off.
