Ireland will also play Japan at the Dublin venue the following week on Saturday, November 20th.

Griffin said: "We’re looking forward to two Test matches on home soil this November, and we’re excited about the opportunity to play in front of our supporters again.

"A Friday Night game under the lights promises to be a special occasion and we hope to see as many of our supporters as possible at the RDS."
