The world was shaken late into Saturday night as Joe Schmidt's team triumphed over the almighty All Blacks in Soldier Field, Chicago, 40 - 29.

We couldn't quite believe it, and we're still pinching ourselves. 

But, round two is coming up, in Dublin, on November 19 - and the bookies aren't all that keen on Ireland doing the double. 

In fact, according to Paddy Power's website, New Zealand are at 1/12 favourites to win at the Aviva Stadium.

And even if you gifted Ireland a 16-point head-start, the Boys In Green still couldn't defeat the All Blacks twice in a row.
