Ireland’s summer tour of Australia is officially off.
Andy Farrell’s men were due to play the Wallabies in Brisbane on July 4th and Sydney a week later.
These matches along with all of the other July international rugby test matches the have been postponed by World Rugby.
Incoming Rugby Australia chairman Hamish McLennan recently spoke about Australian rugby surviving the present onslaught, saying there would be brighter days ahead. “The next few years will be lean but there are a lot of good things we are working towards including the British and Irish Lions tour (of 2025) and the World Cup bid for 2027. And if we get the World Cup, Australia won’t have a solvency issue.”
