Virgin Media Television has announced that it has secured free-to-air rights to broadcast Ireland’s upcoming 2022 Bank of Ireland Nations Series matches.

The three Tests will be available to watch live on Virgin Media Two in the Republic of Ireland, with Amazon’s Prime Video also having comprehensive coverage of the games in the UK and Ireland.

Indeed, Irish rugby fans will be able to stream every single rugby international in one place, on Amazon Prime, this November.

Ireland kick off their campaign against World champions South Africa on Saturday, November 5. This will be the one and only meeting between the two sides before they face one another in the pool stages at next year’s Rugby World Cup.

Next up for Andy Farrell’s men is the visit of an exciting Fiji team one week later. The Pacific Islanders always bring plenty to the party and their own exhilarating brand of rugby.

The Bank of Ireland Nation Series concludes with a mouth-watering clash with Australia on Saturday, November 19. Ireland will be hoping to continue their recent success against the Wallabies following a 2-1 series win Down Under in 2018.

Meanwhile, Virgin Media Television will also have live coverage of the Ireland ‘A’ game against the All Blacks XV from the RDS on Friday, November 4. It will be live on Virgin Media Two and the Virgin Media Player.


Friday, November 4 – Ireland ‘A’ v All Blacks XV, Virgin Media Two, 7pm-10pm

Saturday, November 5 – Ireland v South Africa, Virgin Media Two, 4.30pm-8pm

Saturday, November 12 – Ireland v Fiji, Virgin Media Two, 12pm-3.30pm

Saturday, November 19 – Ireland v Australia, Virgin Media Two, 7pm-10.30pm
