Irish keen to play well on Eden Park again

6:06 am on 6 June 2012

The Ireland full-back Rob Kearney hopes to draw on good memories of Eden Park in Saturday's first Test against the All Blacks.

Ireland beat Australia 15-6 at the ground during last year's World Cup.

Kearney says they set a bar there in that game and it's important for them to keep matching that.

He says as players, they always believe that they can match it with the best teams in the world when they turn up and play good rugby.

Kearney believes there is no greater motivation than taking on the All Blacks in New Zealand.
