TRY! Incredible pace from Will Jordan to blaze over (NZ 22-25 Ire)

A courageous Ireland held off a fierce All Blacks fightback to claim an epic 32-22 win in the series-deciding third test in Wellington on Saturday.

Beaten in the opening test at Eden Park, Ireland completed rare back-to-back victories over New Zealand following their win in the second match at Dunedin

TRY! NEW ZEALAND 22-25 Ireland (Will Jordan try, 61 minutes)

Electric from Will Jordan! What pace from the Crusaders flyer, such a danger in the open field.

Jordan takes an inside ball from Ardie Savea just outside the New Zealand 22, bolting through a sizeable hole in the Irish defence.

He sizes up the backfield, and spots Johnny Sexton, who no longer has quite the acceleration in his legs he once had. Jordan arcs to the right, engaging Sexton in a foot-race and scorching him, sprinting away into the corner for yet another international try.

Jordie Barrett’s conversion is mighty, mighty close to going over, and the full-back seems to think it was inside the right-hand post – but the flags stay down.
