Ireland captain Rory Best
"It just felt like the right thing to do and it was our way, as an Irish national team, just to show a mark of respect to Axel and his family.
"Obviously, there was a lot of emotion and the Munster boys got a lot from that. It was just an emotionally-charged day for us."
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen
Referring to the 2013 test in Dublin which New Zealand won with an 82nd minute re-taken conversion. "I thought they played outstanding today and thoroughly deserved the win. Makes up for the last time when they probably should have won too, so big credit to them."
Ireland coach Joe Schmidt
"I think I actually said something inadvertently during the week like 'well if you win here, I don't really care too much about what you do the rest of the series'.
So I've probably put my foot in it there. Bestie (Rory Best) will probably remind me about that on the fight home, where there's an alcohol ban, which will probably be lifted as soon as the boys sit down. I'm probably not going to obey the alcohol ban myself."
"I am sure I will be forgiven by the people in New Zealand, because they know it is the men who rock up out there, and roll up their sleeves up and get on with the job."
