      The Writer reckons that the closest Ireland have ever been to beating NZ was in 2013.

      Obviously he forgot about 1973

        Probably not too much shooting up the rankings with nz twice and Oz included. Could be time for that elusive win against nz.

          The tour to SA will be a waste of time after the players have been on the go for two years without a break, but I am pleased to see Ireland playing two games against NZ and also looking to tap into the US/ Irish Disapora market.

            Nobody mentioning that we'll play 4 AIs that year instead of the usual three - something the IRFU resisted the temptation to do up until now. Decided we need to raise a few more quid to compete with the French and English clubs perhaps?

              That first game is a rescheduled summer fixture. The All Blacks are the "home side" and will get lions share of the cash

              What's the difference anyway

                Ireland are listed as the "home" team.

                  Surely they should be called the Winter Internationals seeing as Winter in Ireland starts on November 1rst?

                    Probably my mistake, thought I'd read the All Blacks were surrendering a home game for this

                      God help them, Wales have got three tests out there in June. I wonder if Chavin Henson will get the call off his sun bed?!??

                        Extwemely chilly is the windy city in winter. I think it may be appropriate to select a side for this fixture predominately made up of Connacht men, seasoned by their recent winning experiences in the far northern east.

                          Of course Chicago is a thousand miles plus closer to Ireland.

                              God I hope NZ win in Chicago! Wouldn't want the first win to be over there!!! ;-)
                              (we can desperately hope for the following match though ;-)
