Ireland set up All Blacks clash this autumn alongside two others
Ireland will host autumn internationals against Japan, New Zealand and Argentina, the Irish Rugby Football Union has announced.
Andy Farrell’s men were already scheduled to begin their autumn campaign away to the United States in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 30.
The three-time world champions, who defeated Ireland 46-14 in the quarter-finals of the 2019 World Cup, have not visited the Aviva Stadium since suffering a first loss on Irish soil in 2018.
Ireland signed off the 2020-21 season by thrashing the USA 71-10 on Saturday evening, having begun a two-match summer series with a entertaining 39-31 win over Japan.
Head coach Farrell said: “We have an exciting year of rugby ahead with an action packed autumn international window, the Six Nations Championship and a tour of New Zealand.”
