After beating the All Blacks in 2016 and 2018, Ireland was confident it could beat the All Blacks.

But while the team remained gracious in defeat – at least compared to Australia; the same can’t be said of Irish brewer Guinness, which is now pumping up its Danish competitor.

For those who don’t know, Guinness’ pints appear black unlike most other beers while Carlsberg’s drafts are the usual golden colour.

England’s got a sometimes decent cricket team and a boat named Boaty McBoatface; but have they got a rugby team capable of beating the All Blacks? Next week will tell.

On the markets today the ASX Small Ords is up 0.1 per cent to 2,870 while ASX 200 is down 0.25 per cent to 6,633.
