Watch: Joe Schmidt explains Ireland's set piece plays – 'I mostly steal them'

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt joked that he's been stealing other teams' moves, following his side's 16-9 win over the All Blacks in Dublin this morning.

With Ireland winger Jacob Stockdale scoring the only try of the game from a well worked set-piece routine, Schmidt was asked about how he and his coaching staff come up with their plays.

The Kiwi coach's joking answer had the gathered press in stitches.

"I mostly steal them from other people," he said.

"I'm always keeping my eye out. I watch Mitre 10 Cup, they've always got a couple of good ones.

"There was one the Highlanders played recently, I showed it to the coaches saying we could maybe do this.

"It's hard to get patents on moves."
