Ireland kept up its dismal World Cup record of never having advanced past the quarterfinals despite having appeared in every edition of the tournament, and departing head coach Joe Schmidt and captain Rory Best will now bow out with their ambitions unfulfilled.
"We have a challenge this week because we are playing the greatest team that has ever been in sport", Jones was quoted as saying.
Steve Hansen and Eddie Jones swapping text messages before their sides clash is the ultimate contrast to what promises to be a furious semifinal between the arch-foes. If the goal is to overtake them, then you have to know what they are doing.
The All Blacks had not played for nearly two weeks since their 71-9 victory over Namibia at the same ground after tournament organisers cancelled their final pool game against Italy due to Typhoon Hagibis.
I think it was slightly harsh from Nigel Owens because New Zealand were lying all over the Irish ruck and rucking is something that is particularly hard to do without using your shoulder but objectively O'Mahony did tuck his arm in a way to use his shoulder on the New Zealander.
Ireland captain Rory Best's global career finished soon after, after 14 years and 124 tests, when he was replaced and left the field in tears.
"But the All Blacks were fantastic tonight, we prepared well".
"We felt we prepared well all week, we felt we'd a game plan, we felt we'd enough in our armory to beat them but they just started off, came out of the blocks hard at us, put us on the back foot and like good sides do, they never let us get off that again".
"I would just like to thank this unbelievable Irish crowd", the Poyntzpass man said.
Mo'unga opened the scoring with a sixth-minute penalty after Jacob Stockdale was penalised for a deliberate knock-on. And with their forwards constantly getting over the gain line, they soon increased it when Aaron Smith scampered over.

It's also said that Leto complained "bitterly" to his agents at CAA, as the company also represents Phillips . A spokesperson for Leto denied the claims and said the actor was still working with Warner Bros.
New Zealand increased its lead in the 32nd minute when a Sevu Reece tackle on Rob Kearney shook the ball loose and Mo'unga kicked it forward, and Beauden Barrett was first to reach it to touch down for the score.
"I'd like to publicly acknowledge Rory & Joe Schmidt". Mo'unga nailed the conversion from way out by the touchline, and Ireland was left with a mountain to climb with only a quarter of the game gone.
New Zealand talked about how impressive Ireland's defence had been in shutting them down, and also looked at ways of combatting both England and South Africa's power game.
The stats told the tale of the half.
The All Blacks' 46-14 demolition of Ireland has set up a seismic showdown in Yokohama but Jones insists his quarter-final conquerors of Australia have the potential to seize greatness for themselves.
"However we should reflect on the enjoyable number of years rugby this team has given us", he said.
The second stanza was a little closer but ultimately no different.
The second try, a penalty try awarded in the 77th minute for a goal-line infringement by All Blacks flanker Matt Todd, was a point of debate after the game.
May suffered a minor hamstring injury during the closing stages of the 40-16 quarter-final victory over Australia, in which he celebrated his 50th cap by running two first-half tries.
"But when I get some distance to reflect, I think it's 75-odd Test matches and we've won 75 percent of them".
