“Out here, it’s survival of the fittest. Only the law of the jungle applies.”

That line certainly felt appropriate for Ireland’s bruising encounter with New Zealand last weekend, a match that felt more like a battle than an actual sporting contest at times.

Australia being Australia, little is likely to change when Joe Schmidt goes up against former Leinster coach Michael Cheika this evening at the Aviva Stadium, where a victory for Ireland would round off a pretty satisfactory November series.

We doubt you need motivating to get in the mood for this one, but if you do, RTÉ’s typically excellent promo, inspired by the TV show everyone is watching right now, will do the trick.

Aviva Stadium, kick-off 5.30pm. Bring it on.
