Can Ireland do it again?

Ireland are reportedly set to get another crack at world champions New Zealand during the November international series next year.

The two sides met on two occasions last year, with Ireland securing a famous win in Chicago, their first over the All Blacks, before a controversial loss in Dublin a couple of weeks later.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

According to Derek Foley of The Irish Daily Star, a deal has been agreed for a November 2018 Test, with a second Test in the Netherlands also mooted, but turned down by the IRFU.

The second game was set to be held Feyenoord’s De Kuip Stadium in Rotterdam, but was turned down by Ireland as they were only set to receive their expenses for the game.

The All Blacks are already set to take on England next year in what looks set to be a packed Autumn International Series.
