Ireland vs Australia

Ireland plays host to Australia at the Aviva Stadium for this Autumn International. The home team are coming of wins over the world champions Springboks and Fiji while the Australians suffered their first ever loss to Italy in their last match. Ireland underlined their number one ranking in their win over South Africa but did not show the same class in the last match against Fiji mainly due to the number of changes made between matches. This match should see the return of recently nominated World Rugby player of the year candidates Johnny Sexton and Josh Van der Flier.

TIP: Sexton in particular transforms the side with his general game control and excellent vision for the match situation. Ireland have had a golden year and will want to end the year with a resounding victory in front of a packed house at the Aviva stadium. Australia will be desperate for a response from their players after losing to Italy for the first time in their history. Coach Dave Rennie is a man under fire and he must shoulder much of the blame for the loss as he made wholesale changes for the Italian match. The bookies have Ireland as favourites for this match and I am also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Worldsportsbetting 1.22, Playabets 1.20 and Sunbet 1.21

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

Ireland vs Australia

  • Ireland have won four of the last five matches against Australia.
  • Ireland won their last two home matches against Australia

Latest results for both teams

Ireland beat Fiji 35-17 in their last match while Australia lost 28-27 to Italy in their last match.

PREDICTION

Australia are missing some key players like Quade Cooper and Samu Kerevi but their absence has only highlighting the lack of depth in the present squad. Ireland’s planning and preparation for next year’s World Cup look well on course while the same can’t be said of a Wallabies team that are enduring one of their worst streaks in recent years. This will be a perfect opportunity for the visitors to throw caution to the wind and play the attacking rugby that they were once famous for. Ireland have strengths in all the key areas of the game therefore I am predicting them to win by 15 points
