Ireland will face South Africa, Argentina and Fiji this November at the Aviva.

The first game of the Guinness Series will come against the Springboks on Sunday, November 12 at 2.30pm.

It will be the first meeting between the sides since Ireland's tour of South Africa in 2016. A tour which yielded Ireland's first victory over the Boks on South African soil.

Joe Schmidt's men will face Fiji six days later at the Aviva (November 18, kick-off 5.30pm).

The series will concluded with a mouthwatering encountering with the Pumas on Saturday, November 25 (kick-off 5.30pm). The last time the teams locked horns was in the 2015 Rugby World Cup quarter-final when Argentina emerged victorious in Cardiff.

Padraig Power, IRFU Director of Commercial & Marketing, said, "This November's Guinness Series promises to have some added edge with recent fixtures against South Africa and Argentina fresh in the memory.

"Argentina ended Ireland's Rugby World Cup hopes in October 2015 while the Springbok edged a thrilling Test series last June after Ireland had made history in Newlands.  Fiji's exciting brand of free flowing rugby will be showcased for the very first time at the Aviva Stadium as the South Sea Islanders play in Dublin for the first time since 2009. 

"Tickets for all three games are competitively priced with another memorable series in store for Irish rugby fans.”
