Sports Digest: Irish rugby players frustrated after devastating loss to All-Blacks

Ireland full-back Rob Kearney races away to score a try against New Zealand.

“But obviously as players we will never, ever criticize our kickers, because they have the hardest job of all. And it was a massive pressure kick for him, and he was carrying a bit of a knock too.

“Had he got that kick it might have been different, and it was a lifeline for them. But despite missing the kick we should still have come through with the result.”
