'I got put on my a**' – Kieran Read accepts blame for Ireland try in All Blacks' loss

All Blacks captain Kieran Read has held his hand up for his role in the All Blacks' 16-9 loss to Ireland in Dublin this morning, unable to prevent the home side's only try.

With Ireland 9-6 in front, winger Jacob Stockdale finished off a well-worked set piece that saw him clean through down the blindside.

Asked about the try in the post match media conference, Read was frank about his role in the passage of play.

"I got put on my a** in the lineout," he began.

"To be honest, I can't remember too much of it.

"It's just a great play from Ireland."
