London - Ireland will tackle South Africa and Australia in next year's November international Test series, the Irish Rugby Football Union announced on Friday.

Joe Schmidt's side will meet South Africa, the world's second-ranked side behind New Zealand, at Dublin's Aviva Stadium on November 8 and will face off against Australia at the same venue on November 22.

In between, they will play a "leading European Tier 2 nation", most probably Georgia, on November 15.

Ireland had a mixed experience in this year's November Tests, comfortably beating Samoa 40-9 but losing 32-15 to Australia and then going down to an agonising 24-22 defeat against New Zealand.
