Game Stats: All Blacks v Ireland, New Plymouth, 12 June 2010

The usual analysis of the All Blacks game,including First 3 to the Breakdown, ball carries, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums. Records of note during this match were Dan Carter passing 1000 test points and becoming the third highest test points scorer behind Johnny Wilkinson and Neil Jenkins. The 68 points scored by the All Blacks is their highest ever score against Ireland, whilst the 28 points Ireland scored is their best against New Zealand. Ben Franks and Sam Whitelock(2) both scored tries on debut.

Please note Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. halting the movement and being the tackler according to the laws of the game), not assists in the tackle situation which are tallied separately. Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball carrier isn’t stopped. Most importantly, I do NOT call a slipped tackle a tackle, it gets noted as a missed tackle.

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player who came on as a substitute.
