Ireland flanker remaining positive
Peter O'Mahony has promised that Ireland will perform better when they face New Zealand in the second Test next Saturday.
Declan Kidney's men were outclassed in the first match against the All Blacks on Saturday, going down 42-10 in Auckland, a game that many believed the Irish had a chance of winning due to the All Blacks' lack of preparation time. They now travel to Christchurch for the second Test, knowing that they must win to have any chance of clinching the series. Despite their disappointing performance at Eden Park, O'Mahony is staying upbeat and believes he and his team-mates will come back stronger from their defeat. "We don't have enough time to keep our heads down or beat ourselves up about everything," he said. "We have another Test Saturday and another opportunity. We go back to work. "They're a good side, but we'll be all right. We'll come back from it," he added.
