CHICAGO -  When it comes to Rugby, they are the New York Yankees, Boston Celtics, Pittsburgh Steelers, or the Montreal Canadiens.

When you think of world dominance in the sport, it all stars with New Zealand's All Blacks Rugby team.

They've got a win percentage of 83 percent all time and are the reigning world champions in the sport. Their success, along with their pregame "Haka" have made them the most recognizable team in world rugby.

Coming up this November they will pay a visit to Soldier Field to play a formidable foe-and one that would love nothing more than to knock off the world's best team. That's the Irish National Team who will take on the All Blacks on the lakefront on November 5th and will look for their first win ever against their opponents from New Zealand.

So far it's been 28 games for Ireland against the All Blacks the last 110 years and they've lost them all. But they do come in as the current holder of the 6 Nations' Trophy which they have won or shared 20 times in their history.

To get ready for the match-up, Tommy Bowe of the Ireland team and Ryan Crotty of the New Zealand All Blacks came in studio to talk with Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman. To watch their segment on the upcoming game, click on the video above.
