Ireland 29 New Zealand 20 rugby LIVE SCORE: Lowe, Kelleher and Doris score tries in thriller – result and updates

IRELAND have BEATEN New Zealand again in a THRILLING Dublin test match.

James Lowe has touched down early on at the Aviva with the hosts getting off to the perfect start, before the All Blacks responded through Codie Taylor.

But Ronan Kelleher responded by barrelling over the All Black try line in the second half before Caelan Doris danced through a huge gap in the Kiwis defence to score their third try.

The Kiwis have had a try disallowed for a forward pass in the build-up after scoring themselves, but Ireland have kept their cool.

    We focussed on James Lowe before the game and he was one of the difference makers today.

    The Ireland winger, born and bred in New Zealand said:

    “Never in a million years did I think this day would come.

    "Since a kid I dreamed of being an All Black.

    “I gave up that dream, I wasn't quite good enough, but to put up a performance against the best team in the world.

    "To stand in front of the haka, it's a childhood dream."
