Australia are the first international touring side to come and play Munster since New Zealand visited in November 2008 for the reopening of Thomond Park Stadium.

On that occasion Munster lost 18-16 in a tight finish, however the occasion was a unique experience and unforgettable for those present and beyond, with over one million people watching it on RTE and many more tuning in around the world.

Australia are not playing against the national side on this tour and Tuesday November 16th is your only opportunity to see Australia play in Ireland this Autumn!
