What did they do last time?
Ireland backed up their 29-15 victory over South Africa a fortnight ago with a 49-7 thumping of that great rugby powerhouse Georgia.
The Wallabies suffered their first loss of the spring tour and first under new coach Michael Cheika, going down to France 29-26 in Paris.
Things you need to know
Ireland have suffered a blow with New Zealand-born centre Jared Payne ruled out with a foot sprain. Gordon D’Arcy, Darren Cave and Stuart Olding are the candidates to replace him. Leinster forward Mike McCarthy has also been ruled out with a concussion suffered against Georgia. Rory Best is battling an injury but is still a chance to face the Wallabies. The Six Nations champs have risen to third on the IRB rankings, one spot above Australia, on the back of six straight wins. Their 14-point disposal of the Springboks two weeks ago put rivals on notice 10 months out from the World Cup.
Wallabies bad boy Kurtley Beale is back in the fold and has been named on an 11-man bench after linking with the touring squad on Sunday. Coach Cheika has made four changes to his starting side with Henry Speight, Sam Carter, Luke Jones and Matt Toomua all included. Joe Tomane, James Horwill, Sean McMahon and Christian Lealiifano have all been dropped. The Wallabies were bad against France, really bad. Their handling was atrocious, they forgot to use their backline, the scrum and lineout were both poor and defence was a major issue for the second straight week.
Reason to watch:
Coach Cheika hates losing and his players have suffered on the training paddock this week after the disappointing defeat to France. How they respond against a quality Ireland side will tell us a lot about how the Wallabies are travelling and what they can realistically achieve under Cheika.
“I think it’s a distraction. We can’t win anything by saying we’re third in the world. I can’t say it’s something we’d be talking about or even aware of,” – Ireland coach Joe Schmidt on his side’s rise to third on the IRB rankings.
“Headed by Paul O’Connell, they’re pretty crafty and old school. There are ways you can go about it, you don’t have to give away penalties. We’ll mix things up and we have to be smart about it,” – Wallabies lock Rob Simmons on the challenge of facing the Ireland pack.
