Ireland To Welcome Bitter Old Foes For 2017 November Internationals

Ireland’s 2017 November international fixtures have been announced and they look set to reacquaint themselves with one of their biggest bogey teams of the professional era.  

Ireland will welcome Argentina to the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, November 25 and revenge will definitely be on the minds of the Irish players after suffering a heartbreaking exit from the 2015 World Cup at the hands of the Pumas.

Ireland were also knocked out by Argentina at the 1999 and 2007 World Cups so history will definitely be on the minds of the Irish players.

Joe Schmidt’s side will also welcome South Africa to Dublin for the first fixture of the November series. Ireland played a three-Test series against the Springboks last summer – a series which Ireland lost 2-1.

Sandwiched between the South Africa and Argentina fixtures will be a match against Fiji in what will be the first time the Pacific nation has played at the renovated home of Irish rugby.
