The team news is in and Ireland's Robbie Henshaw has been ruled out of today's clash with Australia due to a hamstring injury. But Bundee Aki and Jimmy O’Brien are both all expected to be available. Skipper Johnny Sexton has recovered from his knock and says he's "ready to go".

After grinding out a 35-17 win over Fiji last week, The Shamrocks face their third and final game of the Autumn Nations series. Beating Dave Rennie's Australia will be a much tougher ask but Andy Farrell will be hoping for a repeat of 2018, when Ireland famously beat the Aussies 20-16 in Sydney.

Australia come the match this evening on the back of their first-ever loss to Italy. Dave Rennie won't be resting any players this week but it's hardly the ideal preparation for a trip to the Aviva.

Watch Ireland vs Australia live stream from abroad with a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rugby rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 percent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
