Ahead of this weekend’s mammoth clash between Ireland and New Zealand, it’s being reported by the Irish Times that the two sides will meet in a three-Test tour in 2022.
The IRFU and NZR currently finalising details of the three-Test series in four years’ time, with an agreement expected shortly. It will be Ireland’s first visit to New Zealand to take on the All Blacks in a decade.
Before that there is of course this Saturday’s game, as well as another visit of New Zealand to Dublin in 2021.
Ireland have lost all 12 Tests against the All Blacks in New Zealand, and the proposed 2022 tour would be Ireland’s first to New Zealand since 2012
