  • Irish rugby fans got a taste of live action at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday as a Leinster/Ulster selection thrashed their Munster/Connacht rivals 68-0 in the first game at the new ground.

    Built on the site of the old Lansdowne Road in Dublin, the €410 million stadium will replace Croke Park as the venue for Ireland's Test matches from next season. South Africa will provide the opposition in the first international at the stadium on November 6.
