Confirmed! Ireland to Host All Blacks in November


In an exciting turn of events, Andy Farrell’s Ireland is gearing up to host Scott Robertson’s formidable All Blacks in a highly anticipated World Cup quarter-final rematch scheduled for November. The clash promises to be a thrilling encounter, rekindling memories of their intense battle in the quarter-finals last October, where New Zealand emerged victorious with a 28-24 scoreline.

The announcement of the All Blacks’ schedule for the upcoming year, revealed on Wednesday evening, has stirred considerable excitement among rugby enthusiasts. Notably, the Kiwi powerhouse is set to face England in a Twickenham fixture just a week prior to their showdown with Ireland in Dublin. This strategic scheduling is sure to add an extra layer of anticipation, setting the stage for some incredible rugby.

The upcoming fixture holds special significance for Ireland, as it marks the first meeting between the two teams since their World Cup quarter-final clash. Despite Ireland having a slight edge in recent encounters, the haunting memories of their double World Cup defeats linger.

Scott Robertson, the former Crusaders boss and current All Blacks head coach succeeding Ian Foster, is setting out on his coaching journey with a two-Test series against England in the summer. This series will serve as a crucial preparation phase for the All Blacks, setting the tone for their upcoming challenges.

Following the summer series, the All Blacks will participate in the Rugby Championship before venturing north to face England once again. However, the spotlight of their tour will undoubtedly be the matchups against Ireland, France, and Italy – with the eagerly anticipated clash against Ireland taking center stage.

As the rugby world eagerly awaits this high-stakes rematch, fans can anticipate a fierce rivalry. Rugby enthusiasts and fans alike are counting down the days until the clash of these titans unfolds on Irish soil.
