The Wallabies will look to bounce back and claim their Test series against Ireland when the two sides clash in the third match. This is The Roar‘s guide to streaming the match online and watching it on TV.

The third and final Test of the June international window series between the two nations will be played at 8pm (AEST) on Saturday, June 23 with the venue to be ANZ Stadium in Sydney.

Australia took the first Test in a hard-fought, narrow victory where they held Ireland, who at that point hadn’t lost a Test in 15 months, tryless. The Irish struggled against the Wallabies defence, with the final scoreline ending up 18-9.

With Jonathan Sexton back for the second Test though, the Irish ran up a couple of tries and managed to hit back, winning their first Test on Australian soil since 1979 with a five-point victory.
