The last two times that Australia and Ireland played against each other year was in the years 2014 and 2016 respectively. Both these games held in Dublin, Ireland. Not surprisingly it was the Irish who triumphed on both of these occasions.
It’s a matter of great interest to the Irish that both times the winning score was finalized with Ireland leading by exactly 3 points. Ireland Rugby Tour Australia 2018 Sydney Meeting is very exciting indeed because it’s a series decider game.
