Dublin - Ireland will play Argentina, New Zealand and the USA at the Aviva Stadium this coming November.

First up, Argentina return to Dublin 12 months after a thrilling match in front of a sold out Aviva Stadium which saw Ireland win 28-19.

The second game of the series marks the return of the All Blacks. It will be two years since New Zealand last played in Durban where they exacted revenge for Ireland's historic win in Chicago just a few weeks before.

The final game of the series sees the USA Eagles make their debut appearance at the Aviva Stadium in what will be their first visit to Dublin since 2004. USA will be brimming with confidence having claimed a major scalp, beating Scotland in Houston recently.

Speaking ahead of the Tests, IRFU Commercial and Marketing Director Padraig Power said: "We are delighted to be welcoming Argentina, New Zealand and the USA to Aviva Stadium this November. Demand for tickets from rugby clubs has been exceptionally high and we expect the remaining tickets that go on general sale to be snapped up.

"We know that Ireland fans will relish the opportunity to see the team in action and we look forward to some great games in November."
