Blockbuster Sydney Ireland Test sold out
Rugby Australia has today confirmed the third and final June Series Test between the Qantas Wallabies and Ireland, to be played at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on June 23, is officially a sell-out.
Reigning Six Nations and Grand Slam champions Ireland yesterday named a full-strength squad to make the trip Down Under, including stars Conor Murray, Jonny Sexton and Tadhg Furlong.
The 2018 series will be the first ever best-of-three battle for the Lansdowne Cup, which is the prize the two nations have competed for since 1999.
Ireland, the current world number two, have held the Cup since 2014, with the Wallabies lasting tasting victory over the Emerald Isle in 2013.
Qantas Wallabies Coach Michael Cheika will announce his squad for the much-anticipated series next Wednesday (30 May) in Brisbane.
