Andy Farrell’s Ireland Squad will tour for the first time since he officially took over the head coach role in December 2019. The global Covid Pandemic forced the cancellation of a two-Test tour in Australia in 2020 and a three-Test tour of Fiji in 2021.
Ireland has not toured New Zealand since 2012 when they played three Tests losing all three but led in the second Test at half-time before losing out 22-19. Following that tour Ireland would lose to New Zealand just once more in 2013 before finally claiming a first victory in 2016 at the 29th attempt. Since Soldier Field, there have been four meetings between the two sides with the honors even at two wins a piece.
This coming July, Ireland will embark on what is possibly its toughest-ever Tour of the professional era. They will play New Zealand in three Tests and play two mid-week fixtures which have yet to be confirmed.
