"In retrospect he might have kicked the goal to gain the 10-point margin like Conor (Murray who went for goal a bit later to make it 30-20) but it was something he had said at half-time that the Welsh were turning their backs at penalties".

Wales attacked from the kickoff and was making ground on the wings until, with 80 1/2 minutes gone, Gareth Anscombe threw a floater out to the right wing and Ireland speedster Jacob Stockdale intercepted and ran 40 meters untouched to the posts to finally settle the result.

He found his groove towards the end of the half, slotting a penalty and a conversion to give Ireland that 15-13 lead.

It was the ideal end to the first half for the home team, giving them a vital 15-13 lead.

After conceding just two penalties in the whole match against England two weeks earlier, Wales had already fallen foul of New Zealand referee Glen Jackson three times by that stage.

At the break the stats showed that Ireland had a whopping 78% of possession and an imposing 84% of the territory. Flanker Dan Leavy ended 11 phases by barging over with a Sexton push.

Johnny Sexton had the nation fretting with a strangely indifferent kicking display that included four misses that cost his team 10 points.

Halfpenny converted, the gap was cut to three, and Wales went all out.
