The big poster of the day and the other poster “The Final End of the Letter”. Ireland face New Zealand on Saturday 14 October at the Stade de France, from 9pm, in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals. A struggle between the two best teams in each hemisphere. A duel between the No. 1 ranked nation in the World Rugby Rankings and the three-time world champions. A match that could quite simply decide the future World Cup winner.

Revenge to take. A defeat at the same stage of the competition in 2019 to the same All Blacks team has clearly not been forgotten by the Irish (46-14). Since this meeting, Andy Farrell has taken charge of the Clover XV in 2020 and his men have won three of the four Test matches played against New Zealand. Despite this good dynamic, Ireland maintains a negative record against the New Zealanders, achieving five victories in 35 matches.
Ireland is problem free. The Irish, dominating Group B, produced an impressive performance, recording four wins in as many games. The third-best attack in the group stage, the Irish were particularly convincing against South Africa (13-8). Enough to fill confidence heading into the quarter-finals.
All black people who are gaining power. After losing from the start to the French team (27-13), the New Zealanders got off to a bad start in their competition, as they suffered their first defeat in their history in the group stage of the World Cup. But then they reported that they were not three-time world champions in vain, as they crushed Namibia (71-3), Italy (96-17) and Uruguay (73-0). They even finished the group stage with the best offense (scoring 253 points).
