The head coachs players produced an magnificent 80 minutes of soccer to Ireland and have not lost a match in the competition.
The costumes first try came in the 11th minute and they never looked back from that. After, Hansen had been quick to praise his players attitude and strategy.
Expertise is a funny thing, is not it? Our young guys have been involved with championship-winning teams in Super Rugby, in minutes, and that is why youre able to pick them with confidence, said the head coach.
Their excitement, excitement and capacity to play in the shape they are in is significant and so is the leadership and experience of the guys whove been through the tough moments in knockout rugby.

I would really enjoy the chance on behalf of myself and the All Blacks to congratulate two men in the opposition – Rory Best and Joe Schmidt, he explained. Both have experienced glorious professions in their various roles for Ireland.
They have made a difference in their period. Both those guys, I understand, are ending up and wed like to acknowledge them publicly for what a excellent job theyve done.

The next thing Id love to admit publicly is that the big fella alongside me [Read]. He has come back from a spine injury, copped a lot of flak from those about his form so gets his drama, but as that injurys got better.
It is not simply that, he has led the staff really well and I think hes even gone to a greater level in the World Cup.
Our attack has gone to a different level and he [Ian Foster] s coaching the finest Ive seen. Scott McLeod is currently doing a fantastic job with all the defence and also my partner Crono [Mike Cron] is doing a excellent job with the forwards. We would not have a group with no four people so Id love to thank them.

Im looking forward to playing them also today we have earned the right. I dont think tonights the night for people although theyll be a huge challenge.
We will enjoy our second, it turned into a distinctive Test match, one which the All Blacks, New Zealanders and the players could be proud of. We will not think about England. Theyre not even in my head
