Guinness Series 2018

Aviva Stadium 


This November, Ireland will play host to New Zealand, Argentina and USA in the 2018 Guinness Series at the Aviva Stadium. The reigning Grand Slam champions will look to extend their unbeaten record at home when they begin the three match series against an incredibly talented Argentinian team who play with pace, power and flair.

Next up is the game the entire world has been waiting for - Ireland versus New Zealand.  The No.1 and No.2 ranked teams in the world go head to head for the first time since 2016 when both teams won a game each in Chicago and Dublin.  The legendary All Blacks will look to assert themselves as the world's best team, but this talented Irish side will have nothing to fear. 

USA Eagles will offer tough opposition in the final game of the series.  This game gives Joe Schmidt an exciting opportunity to test some new partnerships as he builds his squad for the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
