Game Stats: Ireland v All Blacks, Dublin, 20 November 2010
by Tracey Nelson
21 Nov 2010

This test match saw Richie McCaw and Mils Muliaina become the most capped All Blacks as they played their 93rd tests. It also saw Graham Henry rack up 100 test wins as a coach (for Wales, the British & Irish Lions, and the All Blacks). 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.

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.

Team: Tony Woodcock, Hikawera Elliot, Owen Franks, Anthony Boric, Tom Donnelly, Jerome Kaino, Richie McCaw(c), Kieran Read, Andy Ellis, Dan Carter, Hosea Gear, Ma’a Nonu, Conrad Smith, Cory Jane, Mils Muliaina
Reserves: Andrew Hore, John Afoa, Sam Whitelock, Liam Messam, Alby Mathewson, Stephen Donald, Sonny Bill Williams.

Substitutions were: Whitelock for Donnelly at 40 min, Hore for Elliot, Mathewson for Ellis, and Williams for Nonu at 58 min, Afoa for Franks at 66 min.
