Australia to play Argentina in Newcastle
NEWS: Newcastle will host its first-ever Rugby Championship later this year, with the Wallabies to play Argentina at McDonald Jones Stadium on September 5.
It will be the Wallabies first Test in the city since a 2012 loss to Scotland at the same venue.
The match will be the fourth fixture for the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship campaign, following home-and-away fixtures against New Zealand and a Perth clash with South Africa.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive, Raelene Castle said: “Newcastle is a sports-mad city and the support for both men’s and women’s Rugby is almost second to none across the country.
“We can’t wait to showcase the Wallabies in one of our strongest Rugby communities and getting out and about in the community to allow locals to get up close and personal with the team.
“If the support from the region for the Wallaroos Test last year is any guide, the first-ever Rugby Championship match is going to be one of the biggest events of the year and will certainly be one of the highlights of our 2020 Test match calendar.”
