Ireland's trip to Las Vegas to take on the USA has been cancelled due to border restrictions, the IRFU has confirmed.

The game was due to take place on 30 October, ahead of three November internationals in Dublin, but has now been called off.

The IRFU issued a bulletin last week about upcoming fixtures but make no mention of the game, which they will now look to reschedule in 2022.

"The continued border restrictions on entry into the United States from Ireland and the UK have presented insurmountable logistical challenges for the Irish team to fulfil the fixture," said the IRFU.

Ireland were due to meet the Eagles at the Allegiant Stadium

"The vision for the 2021 Las Vegas Rugby Cup is for Irish and international rugby fans to descend on Las Vegas and create a global showcase for international rugby.

"That is not possible in October with border restrictions between Ireland, the UK and USA remaining in place until 1 November 2021.

"USA Rugby, the IRFU and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor Authority are supportive of rescheduling the match to October 2022."

Andy Farrell’s men will now focus on Autumn Series Tests against Japan, New Zealand and Argentina, all of which are live on RTÉ.
