The landmark two-test International Rules series between the Indigenous All-Stars team representing Australia and hosts Ireland will be telecast exclusively on 7mate.

Host broadcaster TG4 Ireland is providing the coverage, with match commentary by Ger Canning, the legendary Irish sports broadcaster.

In the first test, to be held at Breffni Park in Cavan, Chris Johnson, the former Brisbane Lions player, will provide expert comments, with Swans’ star Adam Goodes fulfilling the role for the second test at Croke Park in Dublin.

    Perhaps the indigenous players, who are the founders of this bogan sport, can do a better job than the convicts that go to Ireland and smashed at their own game. Up there cazaly

    Nobody gives a toss about the stupid pretend "International Rules" game...It's just a way for the pathetic AFL to make them feel like they are playing in an international sport...keeping in mind that Australian Football is the only sport in the world that is not played on the world stage...It's just a "jolly" for the skinny little Aussie Rules players and an excuse for that Irish twit that coaches(?) them can get home to see his beloved IRA.

    Pity to get such anti sport comments. Gaelic football has a long history and now has the chance to perform against a great sporting nation. The competition is about having the opportunity to perform at the highest level. What does it matter if the rules are amended it is the competition and spectacle that counts.

    Who really gives a toss about the Australian "Apartheid" team and their holiday jaunt to Ireland. The hybrid game is a joke, as a matter of fact its nearly as boring as silly sooky soccer and Thugby League.
