Twitter Erupts After Ireland U20s' Win Over New Zealand

Twitter Erupts After Ireland U20s' Win Over New Zealand
By Paul McNulty Updated

The Irish Twitterati are out in force to celebrate the Ireland under-20's rugby team's historic 33-24 win over New Zealand in the World Cup group stage.

Following Tuesday's somewhat unexpected win against Grand Slam champions Wales, this victory - a first for an Irish rugby team over New Zealand at any level - leaves Ireland as good as in the semi-finals - with only Georgia to go for Nigel Carolan's side.

Ireland were a staggering 14/1 to win the game - and the handicap was set at 26 points - so basically, Ireland were 35 points better than bookmakers expected them to be.

Brian O'Driscoll was one of the first to congratulate the side and he was joined by Sean O'Brien, Dublin footballer Ciaran Kilkenny and former UFC star Cathal Pendred.
