Ireland wrap up their tour of New Zealand with a terrific Summer Internationals decider in Wellington this weekend.


The Irish were put to the sword in their first outing against the All Blacks, but dug deep in a chaotic encounter last weekend to triumph 23-12.

Angus Ta'avao was sent off after half an hour for the home side, and Ireland took full advantage in the second half as they drove home to the win.

New Zealand have brought in former Ireland coach Joe Schmidt to aid their preparations for the series and were heavy favourites to whitewash the visitors, despite concerns over the availability of a few of their players due to COVID-19.
