Venues for Wallabies v Springboks confirmed
NEWS: The Springboks will face the Wallabies at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in the 2021 Rugby Championship.
The other fixture between the two teams in this year’s tournament will take place at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.
The Test at the SCG will be the Springboks’ first overseas Test match since their Rugby World Cup victory in Japan in 2019.
South Africa skipped last year’s internationals due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Wallabies and world champions South Africa will square off at the SCG on September 12 and their second meeting will take place six days later in Brisbane on September 18.
Meanwhile, the Wallabies will play in Canberra for the first time in more than four years when they host Argentina in October in the tournament.
Australia will also face the Pumas at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle, in a re-match of their dramatic 15-all draw at the same venue last year.
