OPINION: It was a reality check for the All Blacks in Dublin after the Irish dominated, out-skilled and out-passioned New Zealand, scoring a deserved 16-9 win.
Steve Hansen's side were by no means poor but the Irish proved too good on the day.

Ireland's influential flanker Peter O'Mahony was the best on display, but who was and wasn't good for the All Blacks?
15. Damian McKenzie - 7
Was the All Blacks best back for me on the day. Have to question why he was pulled with 20 minutes to go, given Beauden Barrett was struggling.
14. Ben Smith - 7
Never has a bad game even when his side isn't at their best. Was beaten by a lovely chip kick for Stockdale's try, but outside of that he was solid.
13. Jack Goodhue - 6
Defended stoutly in a brutal midfield matchup. Had some nice touches with ball in hand.
12. Ryan Crotty - 6
Much like Goodhue, Crotty was excellent on defence. Never lets the Black jersey down.
11. Rieko Ioane - 6
Quiet test aside from one nice run from broken play in the second half.
10. Beauden Barrett - 5
Scored all of the All Blacks' points, but that was his only highlight. He couldn't find a way to break open the Irish defence and his option-taking, for the second-straight test, was poor.
9. Aaron Smith - 5
His pass was unusually wayward and he struggled to deal with the smothering Irish defence at the ruck. Almost prevented Stockdale's try, was a gutsy chase on defence.
8. Kieran Read - 6
Much like his forward cohorts, Read couldn't dent the outstanding green wall. Tried hard and almost created an All Blacks try after a well-timed charge-down, but his hands let him down.
7. Ardie Savea - 9
Shaded by Peter O'Mahony for the best on the park. Savea has proven his quality in Sam Cane's absence and will surely push his fellow openside for a starting role next year.
6. Liam Squire - 5
Didn't get enough time to make a true impact after suffering an injury 20 minutes in.
5. Sam Whitelock - 6
Stole a couple Irish lineouts, tackled superbly well but couldn't make an impact with the ball and gave away a stupid first-half penalty.
4. Brodie Retallick - 5
Ouch. His worse test performance? Not sure, but he wasn't great. Two crucial mistakes with ball in hand and was dropped off a few tackles. Expect him to bounce back next week, if selected.
3. Owen Franks - 6
The All Black scrum wasn't great early on, but strangely when they started to gain parity, Franks and his buddies were hooked.
2. Codie Taylor - 5
Failed to make any true impact on the game.
1. Karl Tu'inukuafe - 6
His first true test as at this level against world class opposition and to be fair he struggled in the first 20 minutes at scrum time. Bounced back well until subbed early in the second spell.
16. Dane Coles - 6
17. Ofa Tuungafasi - 6
18. Nepo Laulala- 6
19. Scott Barrett 7
20. Matt Todd - no rating
21. TJ Perenara - 5
22. Richie Mo'unga - 6
23. Anton Lienert. Brown - 7
