Beating All Blacks will come in time

IT is sometimes said, within Ireland, that we do not have the players to really compete with the best in the world.

Last Sunday week proved that Irish players have the natural ability to beat any rugby nation, including the mighty New Zealand. However, the key reason why we failed to take the victory we should have against the All Blacks is a big lesson we can learn from NZ rugby: mental toughness.

It will only be by playing the All Blacks regularly that will we eventually beat them.
