    The world No.2 Ireland will tour Australia for three Tests against the Wallabies during the June International window. The first Test will be played at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm (AEST) on Saturday, June 9.

    Ireland are coming off victory in the Six Nations, where they beat all of Europe’s best, not dropping any of their five games throughout the prestigious tournament.

    Australia, on the other hand, haven’t played since their Spring Tour in 2017 where they had moderate success, beating Japan and Wales, but getting well beaten by Scotland and England. Interestingly, there was no match against Ireland on that tour.

      I will not be watching this game given the side does not fully represent Australia. Reinstate the Force and I will change my mind.
