Eir Sport To Show Ireland Vs Italy For Free On YouTube

Eir Sport has announced that it will broadcast Ireland's November international game against Italy for free on YouTube.

Ireland play Italy in Chicago on Saturday, November 3rd. The game will be played at Soldier Field, the home of NFL side, Chicago Bears, and also the scene of Ireland's victory over the All Blacks two years ago.

Coverage of the game will begin at 7:30pm on eir Sport 2 along with the broadcaster's YouTube channel where it will be available for those in the Republic of Ireland.

Joe Schmidt yesterday named his 26-man squad for the trip to the States. Absent from the group are big names like Johnny Sexton, Peter O'Mahony and Rory Best.

Two uncapped players have travelled: Ulster's Will Addison and Leinster's Ross Byrne.
