Wallabies set up 'blockbuster' Tests
NEWS: The Wallabies will face Ireland and the All Blacks at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium next year, Rugby Australia has announced.
The clash with Ireland on July 4 sets up a rematch of the 2018 fixture at the same venue, won by Australia, while the Wallabies will face Trans Tasman foes New Zealand on October 17 in their third and final Bledisloe Cup clash of 2020.
The July 4 clash will be the first outing of the new year for the Wallabies and will be the first Test of a two-match series against Ireland on their 2020 tour of Australia.
A second blockbuster Queensland fixture for 2020 will see the Qantas Wallabies and New Zealand All Blacks square off in their third and final Bledisloe Cup clash for the year on October 17.
The Wallabies will host two Bledisloe Cup Tests in the three-Test series in 2020, with the Suncorp Stadium clash to be the final Test on home soil before the team departs for its Spring Tour of Europe.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive, Raelene Castle said: “Suncorp Stadium has been the venue for some of the most memorable Wallabies Test matches in recent years and the stage is set for two more high-quality Test matches in 2020.
“Brisbane knows how to put on a great show and the Wallabies always have outstanding support every time they come to town. The Wallabies have a strong record at Suncorp Stadium, and it is no wonder that it is one of the favourite venues for our players.”
