Wow. We promised you a gourmet spread of international rugby - and it delivered. What do you mean you've only just tuned in? Tsk.

Here's what you missed (or what you already know and want to catch up on because it was so good):

That's the international weekend over as far as the Home Nations are concerend. More of the same next week? Yes please. See you then!

'Chicago was a reality check'

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

New Zealand forward Brodie Retallick talking to Sky Sports: "That's the kind of footie you want to play, it was a great game. 

"We have been talking about trying to cut down on the penalties and tonight it didn't help us again. We need to sort it out or it could cost us.

"It was a bit of a reality check (getting beat last week). There are a few things we need to work on and we got caught out in Chicago."

Former Ireland and Lions fly-half

Ireland emptied the tanks out there.

They gave everything they could give and still lost 21-9.

New Zealand always looked the most likely and I really feel for Ireland but they were up against World Champions.

Ireland are going to hold their head up. It is vital having compete for two games against New Zealand that they repeat it against Australia next week.

James Wurr: Ireland have been very unlucky. 3 early injuries to key players and 2 very dubious tries.  

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Ireland had almost 80% possession in the third quarter, but lacked that killer instinct. Injuries to key men (Sexton, Henshaw, Stander) didn't help, nor did a couple of questionable refereeing decisions.

Plenty of positives to take though for Joe Schmidt's men. 

'Credit to them for holding us out'

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Ireland's Conor Murray talking to Sky Sports: "All credit to New Zealand for holding on in there. We tried our best and full credit to our lads.

"We gave them, not an easy lead, but a couple of sloppy scores. We tried to fight back, but credit to them for holding us out."

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Once bitten, twice shy. Well, I say shy. The All Blacks came out swinging, sometimes almost literally. It was a hell of a physical battle. And it needed to be to stop Ireland claiming back-to-back wins.

One thing I really believe in is the harder you work for luckier you get and New Zealand have worked their socks off from the first minute until the last.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Revenge. Ireland threw some big hits at the All Blacks, but lacked that killer instinct against the side they shocked a fortnight ago.

Still a crackerjack though in Dublin.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

A poor kick from the All Blacks gifts the ball back to Ireland. Come on, let''s finish this with a try. Jared Payne sniffs whitewash when he gallops through the line, only to spill the ball as he stares into the whites of Ben Smith's eyes. Sums up Ireland's afternoon that.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

A hush around the Aviva now. A few home fans might have decided to leg it to the car park. Ireland still having a go, but not very convincingly.

46 - This is Cronin's 46th sub app, more than any other @IrishRugby player & joint 2nd most from any nation (Mealamu 55, Weepu 46). Impact.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Sean Cronin has made a big impact from the bench. He drills into New Zealand territory again, finding Jamie Heaslip in support. But the Irish number eight loses control as he hits a wall of back shirts. Time running out...

Ireland have huffed and puffed but just haven't been able to blow the house down.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

These New Zealand players have no intention of letting this lot embarrass them again. The All Blacks defence has been stoic this afternoon. Some might say a little 'aggressive', but you'll do anything to win a rugby match, right? Sean Cronin drops the ball under pressure as the visitors get a breather.

Jones' composure stunning - Wood

Scotland 19-16 Argentina

Keith Wood

Former Ireland captain on BBC Two

Huw Jones created Scotland's try with a superb run and offload for Sean Maitland.

I am stunned with his composure, he had very little to do and that was his one big-match moment and he did it perfectly.

He had an awareness around him. It's hard to coach. You to kind of have to have it and he has it.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Into the final 10. Is it too much of an ask for Ireland now? Not if Josh van der Flier has anything to do with it. Or Sean Cronin. The Irish bench is punching holes in the All Blacks defence. 

'That post doesn't like me'

Scotland 19-16 Argentina

Scotland's Greig Laidlaw, who scored his side's winning penalty moments after hitting the post from another: "Thank goodness I got a second chance. I was disappointed with the first one, that right hand post doesn't like me. 

"Credit to the boys. We are delighted to win at home. 

"The doubts weren't there from last week. We were disappointed from Australia but we have learned quick in a week.

"The boys were outstanding. To win at home there is no better feeling."

Michael Moran: Officials still having a shocker. Not bothering to check what may well have been a forward pass.

Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

That could well knock the stuffing out of Ireland. A sucker punch from the All Blacks. But that's what happens if you don't make possession and territory count against 14 men...

Tony Ward

Former Ireland and Lions fly-half

Total class in every respect from New Zealand.

The pass was marginal, very, very close to being forward.

Converted try - Ireland 9-21 New Zealand

Fekitoa try, Barrett con

Ah. More urgency from the All Blacks suddenly and it pays off. Beauden Barrett is the architect, making the break before finding Malakai Fekitoa via the hands of TJ Perenara.

Forward pass? Tight.

Ireland 9-14 New Zealand

Former Ireland and Lions fly-half

It is a fantastic game. You dare not take your eyes off this. 

It is an absolute humdinger of a game.

Ireland 9-14 New Zealand

Now the Irish have been opened up. Israel Dagg shows footwork that Michael Flatley would be proud of, zig-zagging his way around the men in green. He looks to have escaped down the right touchline before he is hauled back by the equally-rapid Simon Zebo. Dagg can't find Aaron Cruden with the offload and Ireland survive.

'We showed grit and determination'

Scotland 19-16 Argentina

Scotland coach Vern Cotter: "It's a pretty good feeling, better than last week that's for sure. I thought we improved on things we had to to nail a game like that.

"I think you saw real grit and determination to work this one out and get the win, we kept pressure on them. In the first half it became a real arm wrestle.

"We showed character and that was important to get what we needed. We'll have a couple of beers in the shed tonight and then think about Georgia tomorrow."

Ireland 9-14 New Zealand

New Zealand look to rectify that possession stat as soon as they are back to 15 men. They go through six phases without really pushing Ireland back though. Turnover! Rob Kearney boots clear, back come the All Blacks...

Ireland 9-14 New Zealand

Guess how much possession Ireland have had in the second half? Go on. A whopping 80 PER CENT! That tells you how well the All Blacks have defended.

Penalty - Ireland 9-14 New Zealand

Jackson

Ireland won't grab that much-needed try while Fekitoa sits in the bin. But they will add three points to their side of the scoreboard. Jared Payne wins the penalty shortly after Rob Kearney is held up short. Better than nowt, as they say in Yorkshire.

Scotland 19-16 Argentina

Man of the match Jonny Gray: "Fair play to Greig, it shows what kind of determination the guy has got. We were disappointing at times but to get a win against a team like that we are very happy.

"It is small margins and they can make a big difference, we had to guts is out against a strong Argentina team. We are happy to get the win."

Ireland 6-14 New Zealand

You cannot switch off for a second against the All Blacks. Ireland do that at a lineout and almost get punished. Dane Coles scampers away down the left flank, luckily Sean O'Brien has some sprightly legs to snuff out the danger.

Ireland 6-14 New Zealand

Another chance goes begging. Josh van der Flier puts his red-scrumcapped head down and drives. Anton Lienert-Brown desperately clings on to his legs, forcing the Irishman to look for an offload. But the ball is scooped up by a black shirt and the visitors survive.

Scotland 19-16 Argentina

Well, it wasn't pretty at times and both teams were guilty of error-strewn performances, but you can't fault the desire in either camp.

Greig Laidlaw hit the post from a penalty with minutes to go and Finn Russell twice failed to convert drop goal attempts, but eventually it was the scrum half who kept his nerve to win it with the last kick of the game.

Ireland 6-14 New Zealand

Ireland HAVE to make this extra man count. They almost have a chance immediately, only for Sean O'Brien to knock on inside the All Blacks 22. It won't be their last opportunity in the next six or seven minutes...

Right then! More, ahem, aggressive defending from the All Blacks is punished. Centre Malakai Fekitoa clatters Simon Zebo with a flailing arm around the gullet and referee Jaco Peyper brings out the yellow card. Don't know how Fekitoa has the cheek to complain.
