The Springboks Ireland Rugby Game for the 27th time on Saturday, 5 November at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Ireland takes on world champions South Africa in an autumn international this weekend. Here’s all you need to know about the match.

It was a tough game and a low point for us as a team. But it was five years ago. (Saturday) is still going to be a really tough challenge, but hopefully it will be a better day at the office.
