Eddie Jones doesn’t fancy Ireland’s chances today.

Ireland take on New Zealand today at the Aviva in a mouth-watering return fixture following Ireland’s historic victory in Chicago. Joe Schmidt’s men grabbed five tries that day in an emphatic, 40-29 win, shocking the rugby world.

The All Blacks are now in Dublin, just two weeks later, wounded and out for revenge. Sean O’Brien returns for Ireland while world-class lock pairing Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick return for the world champions.

New Zealand v England

The question for many is can Ireland beat the All Blacks again? Eddie Jones’ England take on Fiji today and understandably his side are 1/100 to win. When asked are England worth the pound, the Australian had this to say.

“Well I think if you took New Zealand and us today you’d get the money.”

Is Jones right? Ireland will be out to prove he’s not today, that’s for sure.
