"It was tremendous today. It felt like it was a game, it felt like something big was happening.

"It felt like shaking in the jungle."

All the nuns were excellent, but the Irish team and coach Joe Schmidt were so excellent, he said.

"We have been prepared for this, and we are quite the best team in the world."

The bar was close to capacity, as 177 players booked for the game, half of Kiwis and half of the Irish player, Murphy said.

The Irish at the bar were "full of hope," while Kiwi expected a regular victory at All Blacks, he said.

"What the Irish did is amazing."

The Irish team, designated by All Blacks coach Steve Hansen as "Team No.1 in the World".

They were also called "inspiring", with the winning work of "golden age" for boys in green.
