@LukeMcLaughlin Ireland need 2 to have this seeded before ‘Smasher Skelton’ enters the fray, he has hurt 2 Leinster multiple times and cost James Ryan a Lions Tour. High intensity, Boltesque line speed, no driving errors and Sextons your uncle! I love November nights in Dublin

clean slate of the southern hemisphere “giants” in the same calendar year is Ireland to take this weekend if they can beat Australia in Dublin. And it’s testament to the changing face of international rugby that it wouldn’t even be the first time. They did it in 2016.

Preamble

If Ireland wins tonight, they will have beaten all three southern hemisphere superpowers this calendar year. Irish fans of a certain age know full well that autumn victories in the season leading up to the World Cup only mean so a lot, but there is no doubt that Andy Farrell’s men are building momentum nicely for next year’s showpiece in France.

Meanwhile, all three of Australia’s games in this Autumn Nations Series have been settled by one point: they beat Scotland 16-15 last month before suffering one-point losses to France and last week, for the first time, to Italy.

Can Ireland add the Wallabies to their 2022 ‘wins’ column? We are about to find out.
