Where To Watch Ireland Vs The All Blacks? TV Details For New Zealand Clash

It's the big one - the All Blacks are in town for the first time in two years and for an inaugural visit since Ireland were crowned the undisputed kings of the Northern Hemisphere. If your hands aren't being warmed by the hottest ticket in town, worry not - here are the details of where to watch Ireland vs The All Blacks.

Where to watch Ireland vs The All Blacks? 

The game is live once again on RTE Two here in Ireland. UK viewers can catch it live on Channel 4. RTE's build-up begins at 6pm, while Channel 4's kicking off ten minutes later. The game itself kicks-off at 7pm.

What are the punditry and commentary line-ups? 

RTE's is the same as last week: Daire O’Brien is joined by Brent Pope, Eddie O’Sullivan, and Stephen Ferris at the Aviva Stadium for reaction and analysis. RTE's commentary duo will be Hugh Cahill and Donal Lenihan, while if you're wondering where Ryle Nugent has gone to....he is on Channel 4 with one Jamie Heaslip, who played in that famous win over the All Blacks in Chicago two years ago.

What's the Irish team? 

It hasn't been named at the time of writing - this piece will be updated with the final selection as soon as it is announced. Conor Murray won't feature, however, and Robbie Henshaw is likely to be absent too with the injury he picked up in last week's warm-up. Ireland are optimistic that Rob Kearney and Garry Ringrose will be involved, however.

And the All Black team? 

Again - yet to be announced. They'll be pretty good, though.

Who's the ref? Christ, it's not Jaco Peyper again? 

Nope, it is former (current?) Enemy of New Zealand, Wayne Barnes.

 

So, a reminder on where to watch Ireland vs the All Blacks - the game is live on RTE Two and Channel 4 from 6pm and 6.10pm respectively. The game kicks off at 7pm at the Aviva Stadium.
