    Novermber 2016 - Ireland to face All Blacks in Chicago?

    Sorry if this has been posted already, I couldn't find anything.
    What do we think about this? I'm not convinced that shipping a load of our top players off to the states in the middle of the season is a good idea at all.

      Chicago in November can be extremely cold!

          This sort of PR exercise would boost the bid for 2023, however the top players don't need another game added. RWC and 6N this year, 3 test tour in South Africa summer 2016. 6N and this game on top of the normal autumn games next season and then there is the Lions Tour of NZ in the summer of 2017! The provinces will not see too much of their Irish players!

            They are due a beating from us and to be honest I think we are getting closer and closer to doing so everytime we play them

            (60-0 manshaming apart)

            Hopefully we can finally eradicate that little stat soon enough.

                Agree, but watching them on present form cant see any team beating them, they just never say die. Have a kiwi workmate and he thinks we are the danger team for them this year, hope beyond hope he is right. Oh the joy of a win over the ABs, id be drunk for a month.
