For Andy Farrell, this is a pivotal and long-overdue moment in his Ireland tenure.

The pandemic denied him the chance to take his show on the road. The 2020 tour of Australia and the 2021 jaunt to Fiji were canned due to Covid-19, but it’s third time lucky for the coach who will name his squad for a daunting five-game trip to New Zealand on Wednesday.
