Ireland are due to play Wales twice in their build up to the Rugby World Cup in England next September. The WRU have today announced Wales's RWC warmup games which include two fixtures against Joe Schmidt's Ireland.
The first meeting will be on August the 8th in Cardiff, which is the venue for Ireland's RWC fixtures with France and the opening game against Canada on the 19th of September. The return meeting in Dublin will take place on Saturday August 29th, which will likely act as the final game before the 31-man squads will have to be announced.
Ireland are also scheduled to play England in Twickenham on September 5th, while there is another game against Scotland in Lansdowne Road that has yet to be fixed to a date.
