IRFU Live Blog: Australia v Ireland

Ireland fell short in a 2-1 series defeat in South Africa two years ago, so how will the recently-crowned Grand Slam champions fare in this mouth-watering three-match tussle with Australia? The first Test in Brisbane kicks off at 8.05pm local time/11.05am Irish time – join us for our live blog, match stats and social media updates.

At home or abroad or in the stadium, the IRFU Live Blog will keep you up to date with live text commentary of Ireland’s opening summer tour clash with the Wallabies. There is expected to be plenty of green in the Suncorp Stadium stands as Joe Schmidt’s men aim to keep their year-long winning run going.
