Ireland vs USA live stream FREE: How to watch Ireland vs USA online today
Ireland are flying high after an incredible 2018 which culminated in beating New Zealand on home soil for the very first time last week.
The Irishmen are looking to make it a clean sweep in their autumn series, with the victory over the All Blacks preceded by wins over Italy in Chicago and Argentina in Dublin.
Head coach Joe Schmidt has made wholesale changes to his side for clash at the Aviva Stadium, which he confirmed was always going to be the case.
“This was always part of the plan to make the changes, the two games book-ended the series and it’s a chance to look at all of the 43 players across the four matches,” said Schmidt.
“Tadhg (Beirne) has slotted in so well, coming off the bench a couple of times in Australia in the summer, and bedding in as part of the broader squad.
“And I thought Iain Henderson came on and did really well last week against New Zealand.
“Tadhg has a really instinctive feel for the game; his running lines, his ability to get into the right defensive positions.
“Those things are a little bit intuitive, and it’s great to coach a guy who tends to know where to be most of the time.”
