GUINNESS Series Kick-Off Times Announced For November

The Irish Rugby Football Union has today announced the dates and kick-off times for the GUINNESS Series of games in November.

The Ireland team will play two full internationals at the Aviva Stadium against South Africa and Argentina, who will both be battle hardened following their participation in the newly-established southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship, the new format of the Tri Nations.

South Africa were the first international side to visit the newly-built Aviva Stadium in November 2010, winning a closely-fought Test by 23-21.

The Springboks will again open the international rugby season when they travel to the northern Hemisphere under the guidance of their new head coach Heyneke Meyer.

Ireland also last took on Argentina that same November in sub zero temperatures, with Declan Kidney’s men winning the game on a 29-9 scoreline.

In between these two full internationals, the O2 Ireland Wolfhounds will play Fiji at Thomond Park.

Broadcast and ticketing details for all three games will be announced in the coming weeks.
