The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Rugby -

Re­ports of a re­turn to Sol­dier Field have been float­ing about since mid-March but the IRFU are seem­ingly about to con­firm the match against Conor O’Shea’s Italy in Chicago on Novem­ber 3rd.

A re­peat of the his­toric All Blacks show­down in Novem­ber 2016 can­not hap­pen as New Zealand play Ja­pan be­fore their Euro­pean tour.

Also, on that date, South Africa face Eng­land at Twick­en­ham while Scot­land visit Cardiff as the de­sire to gen­er­ate in­come has unions in­creas­ingly dis­re­gard­ing World Rugby’s three week in­ter­na­tional win­dow in Novem­ber. It means the Eng­land and French clubs do not need to re­lease play­ers.
