Ireland rugby great Conor Murray quickly forgot any match woes last night when he hung out with the All Blacks team at a Dublin venue.

New Zealand’s Aaron Smith tweeted a photo of himself and Conor Murray hanging out at the venue.

Any tensions from the game disappeared, as the two exchanged friendly banter after they met.

“Nice to catch up with ya after the game bro!” Smith tweeted.

Murray’s friendly reply read: “you too bud, make sure you get that man cave!”

Following one of the most exciting, nail biting matches of all time, the Irish team needed somewhere to relax post-match.

Try scorers Conor Murray and Rob Kearney unwound with Man Of The Match Sean O’Brien in Everleigh Garden on Harcourt Street.

Fans got the chance to commiserate with the team for coming so close to making history – and the players got more than a few cheers for their heroic efforts.
