Ireland At Rugby World Cup To The Quarterfinals - But No Further

Rugby World Cup


Ireland At Rugby World Cup To The Quarterfinals:


Tried seven times, seven times failed. Ireland's rugby team must continue to wait for the first semi-final in its history.

Defending champion New Zealand dominated the Irish - and now face England. Ireland's rugby national team failed for the seventh time in World Cup history in the quarter-finals.

The Irish lost against the record world champion and top favourites New Zealand 14:46 (0:22) and missed the first-ever entry into a World Cup semi-final.

From the beginning, the Irish had big problems. New Zealand's Aaron Smith scored the first two attempts for the All Blacks in just six minutes (14th minute, 20th).

Beauden Barrett scored the 22: 0 (32.) before half-time - and pre-decided the match before the break. Ireland tried to come back in the second half but did not pass the strong New Zealand defence.

Only when New Zealand replaced, the Irish came to opportunities. An attempt by Robbie Henshaw (69.) and a criminal attempt (76.) but came too late to the All Blacks again to be dangerous.

This prevented the Irish at least, as the first team in the history of the World Cup in a knockout game not to score.

Ireland had started in the World Cup as a world number one with great ambitions but surprisingly lost to hosts Japan in the group stage. New Zealand meets England in the semi-final.

England - Australia:


The English won in Oita Prefecture against runner-up Australia. After the lost World Cup finals in 2015 against New Zealand, the Australian rugby team in Japan wanted to get the first title in 20 years.

This plan failed already in the quarterfinals because the team remained in the second half 36 minutes without a point of their own.

For England, it is the first semi-final since 2007 at the last World Cup failed the team already in the preliminary round. Most recently, the rugby motherland was able to win the title at the 2003 World Cup.

Although Australia took the lead through a penalty kick from Christian Lealiifano (12th minute), the team failed to attempt the first half.

Anders the English: After fast passes to the left side brought Jonny May England in the lead (18).

36 minutes without Australian point:


Only three minutes later increased the English. After a mistake by the Australians in the opposing half, England countered Tom Curry, who was caught by two opponents but kicked the ball in the run of May (21).

Although Australia started in the second round with an early attempt by Marika Koroibete (43), but then missed the team to score from promising positions.

England's defence, in particular, made things difficult for the Australians, but after their attempt and the successful raise by Lealiifano (44th), the Wallabies did not score another point until the end of the match.

On their defensive piled in the Australians also the mistakes. Before his field, Australia's Kurtley Beale played a devastating miss to Anthony Watson, who was only a few yards to go to England
(76 ').
