The head coachs players havent lost a game in the contest since 2007 and produced an 80 minutes of rugby from 46-14 in Tokyo to Ireland.
The ensembles first attempt came in the 11th minute and they never looked back from this. After, Hansen had been quick to praise his players attitude and strategy.
Experience is a funny thing, is not it? Our young guys are involved in championship-winning teams in Super Rugby, in big moments, and that is the reason youre able to select them with confidence, said the head coach.
Their enthusiasm, excitement and capacity to play in the shape they are in is significant and so is the experience and leadership of those men whove been through the difficult minutes in Baseball.
Of their gifts over recent years, Hansen took a moment both with captain Rory Best retiring, and his counterpart accountable for Ireland for the last time at Tokyo.
Id really like the chance on behalf of the All Blacks to congratulate two guys in the opposition – Rory Best and Joe Schmidt, he said. Both have had magnificent careers in their respective roles for Ireland.
They have made a difference in their time. Both those guys, I understand, are finishing up and wed love to acknowledge them publicly for what a excellent job they have done.
Hansen subsequently turned the attention and spoke extremely highly of the way in.
The next thing Id love to admit publicly is that the large fella together with me [Read]. He has return from a spine injury, copped a great deal of flak from folks about his form so has his drama but as that harms got improved.
Its not only that, hes led the staff quite well and I think he has even gone to a greater degree in the World Cup.
Our assault has gone to a different level and he [Ian Foster] s training the best Ive seen. Scott McLeod is currently doing an excellent job with the defence as well as also my old mate Crono [Mike Cron] is doing a terrific job. We wouldnt have a group with no four individuals so Id love to thank them.
New Zealands remarkable quarter-final performance sees them create a last four encounter with Eddie Jones England.
England are coming the clash off the rear part of their emphatic success that is quarter-final – punishing Australia 40-16 in Oita – and also Hansen shared Jones love for the encounter.
I am looking forward to playing them too now we have got the right. I dont think tonight is the night for us to be talking about that although they will be a challenge.
Well enjoy our second, it turned into a special Test game, one that the All Blacks, New Zealanders and the players could be proud of. We wont think until tomorrow about England. They are not even on my mind.
