Irish and ref superb; Views of Wales.

SIR - As my wife is of Munster descent, I am always delighted to see Ireland win when not playing Wales.

We were both speechless and felt so sorry for the players on Sunday when the boys in green played so valiantly and deserved to beat the All Blacks, but sadly lost with the last passage of play. Sport can be so cruel but I guess that is what makes it such compelling viewing, and at least the Irish have shown the rest of us that the men in black are definitely beatable.

All credit to Nigel Owens also on his superb refereeing, which ensured that we were able to enjoy a wonderfully entertaining free-flowing game throughout. If only other referees would watch how he officiates, we would have far fewer games ruined by excessive whistle interruptions, especially at scrum time.
