When I watched Ireland I did notice when they were leading 22-10 they started to get defensive and let the All Blacks dictate the play. In this situation when you lead by this margin you should continue to attack and carry on the tactics you used or be able to change the tactics and strategy if your opponent begins to understand your plan and make a counter attack. NZ believed more and were able to up the level in the 2nd half. This is part of the All Blacks dominance and it only comes from hard work and working individually to help the team win. Ireland will need to go back to training ground and work on the self belief and work harder on what they achieved in the 19-0 lead in the first half.
Spurs on the other hand have bought players from the Bale money in the summer and the players have turned out to mediocre type individuals. Soldado has been very disappointing and Paulinho is hit and miss and Eriksen has just got injured and will not be available for a few weeks. With Spurs I feel the management are not cutting the mustard. When Redknapp took charge of Spurs the team spirit was positive and under AVB it appears to be non existent.
Its easy to lose and harder to win. Work hard to win!
