Ireland play the USA this coming Saturday in the final fixture of the Vodafone Summer Series. The game which kicks off at 7.15pm and will be televised by RTE and Channel 4 is the third fixture between the two sides in the past four years.

Ireland have won the last two games between the sides 55-19 in New Jersey in 2017 and 57-14 in the Aviva Stadium in 2018. There is also the added spice of the return fixture between the two teams in Las Vegas in the autumn.
