Proceedings at the Aviva are brutally physical, to the point that there had been 103 tackles made by the 17th minute.
New Zealand have a reputation for taking their physicality right to the border of what is deemed acceptable, although do occasionally go over the top. That was in evidence early in this game, when Sam Whitelock's wild, flailing arm hit Cian Healy as the second-row flew into an early ruck.
Wayne Barnes did not penalise Whitelock, although the All Black was extremely fortunate to avoid censure. Watch it below.
