Ireland’s ielters 7 test in Dublin: What’s next
The ielers are set to play a Test against New Zealand at Croke Park in Dublin on Saturday night.
A win would send the Ireland squad to New Zealand for the first time since 2014.
Ireland will now face the Lions in the Six Nations on December 13, while they will face England on December 16.
They will also face Australia on December 23 and Scotland on December 27.
The Lions will be without the suspended captain Eoin Morgan (knee) and the back row duo of James Tracey and Joe Marler.
The Irish were beaten by Australia in the Rugby Championship in the second half of last season.
They were beaten 49-3 by the Wallabies last year and have not won a Test in the championship since their last Test in 2016.
The game will kick off at 8:15pm (AEST).
Ireland captain Liam Williams, who was Ireland’s top try scorer in the 2015 Six Nations, is also in the squad.
