2020 Autumn International Ireland v South Africa
Ireland will host World Cup Winners South Africa in the second of their Autumn Internationals and it goes without saying that both teams will be up for the challenge. What also goes without question is that we will see a brilliant display of rugby, enjoyed with a Guinness or two.
Ireland v South Africa; The Rugby World Cup Champions will be in town as Ireland take on South Africa in what promises to be an incredibly physical encounter.
The Ireland and South Africa rugby union teams have a rivalry dating back to 1906. The Springboks of South Africa have dominated their early meetings, with the Irish winning just once prior to 2004, but results have been more evenly matched since then. Overall, Ireland and South Africa have played each other on 26 occasions since their first meeting in 1906. The Springboks have won 18 matches, whilst Ireland have won 7 matches. There has also been one draw between the two teams.
The teams’ meeting on 6 November 2010 was the first Ireland Test at their new home of Aviva Stadium, where Ireland lost 23-21.
In 2016, Ireland achieved their first test victory against the Springboks in South Africa with a 26-20 victory in Cape Town, but went on to lose the 2 other test matches.
Ireland dismantled the Springboks in 2017 when the sides last met with a record breaking victory of 38 – 3. The Springboks will be high on confidence this time around with Rassie Erasmus eager to lay down a marker ahead of the 2021 Lions Tour. Johan ‘Rassie’ Erasmus has been the South African Head Coach since 2018. A former player, he’s also the former Director of Rugby of Irish provincial side Munster, and previously served as General Manager of High Performance Teams for South African Rugby Union. Doubling up on his duties as the first ever SARU Director of Rugby, which he was appointed towards the end of 2017, after South Africa won the 2019 Rugby World Cup, he was awarded the World Rugby Coach of the Year in 2019.
Ireland v South Africa at the Aviva Stadium which is like a cauldron on a match day, with the Irish crowd singing ‘Fields of Athenry’ and getting behind their men in green. Guests can expect a hospitable welcome with plenty of draught Guinness, a 3 course lunch, and rugby legends talking through the events of the day.
