Ireland rugby captain Rory Best and coach Joe Schmidt and All Blacks coach Steve Hanson talk about the Irish victory over New Zealand at the Aviva.
“Since it was 1 v 2 today – as of now Ireland are the number one team in the world, so that result makes them favourites for the World Cup” said Hansen.
When Joe Schmidt was asked to reply to Hansen’s thoughts, he wasnt going to even engage, it was all about next week.
“We are just focusing on the USA next week. I think he enjoyed a bit of banter. We can’t control what people say, we’ll take tonight and focus on the next 11 months”. Schmidt disagreed that Ireland are the favourites for the World Cup, pointing out that the All Blacks have been the best team on the planet for the last 9 years.
