Confirmed: Ireland will play four warm up games before next year’s Rugby World Cup
What a way to whet our rugby appetite before the big tournament…
Ireland will now face Six Nations rivals Wales, Scotland and England before the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England next year.
Following a hugely successful season in 2014 at international level, hopes are high heading into 2015 and there is a belief that we can finally buck the trend and make a World Cup semi-final... at least.
Ireland will play Wales in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on August 8, before playing Scotland in the Aviva Stadium the week after.
After a week off, it will be full throttle as we take on Wales in Dublin and England in Twickenham in successive weekends.
Tickets for the games as well as kick-off times will be released early next year but, for now, the current fixtures are below…
