The final encounter between the two teams took place last week, and Andy Farrell's team, playing the All Blacks for the first time on New Zealand soil, triumphed 23-12 thanks to two tries from Andrew Porter.

Since the hosts won 42-19 the week before, everything is still up for grabs going into this weekend's match.
No test of character has been put Ireland through more rigorously, in Andy Farrell's opinion.

He said to Sky Sports: "This bunch is unique. to arrive here and accomplish what they have accomplished.

"Given what we already know will occur over the next few years, it won't be done again.

"The hardest thing to do in rugby is definitely this. We arrived here. End-of-season tours weren't discussed at all.

"After picking ourselves up, we arrived here with a purpose at hand. We immediately attacked the challenge.
The All Blacks are trying to fight their way back into the game, and Porter's sinbin has changed the game. After a fast side step around Hansen and two lunging Irish tackles, Akira Ioane successfully crosses the try line.
