Foster will have a selection conundrum as players put up stellar performances that will make his life difficult come their tie against the Irish. Leicester Fainganuku scored an impressive hatrick of tries with 224 run meters to his name while Mckenzie and Will Jordan razzle dazzled with 2 tries and try assists.

Captain Sam Cane started his first game of the tournament having missed out before through injury while lock veteran Sam Whitelock played his 150th test for the All Blacks. With quality all over the pitch selection permutations may prove to be Ian Foster’s undoing as bold decisions are necessary.

Ireland on the other hand has their last group test vs. the Scots who may throw a spanner in the works. After coming so close in the 6 Nations, Scotland will have to beat the Irish if they are to progress in the competition so it is a do-or-die for them.
