The 2022 Rugby Championship fixtures have been announced. The All Blacks won the 2021 Rugby Championship with five wins. They had an opportunity to complete the grand slam, but narrowly went down to the Springboks in the last Test of the tournament.
Australia performed well after losing to the All Blacks in the first two rounds including impressive back to back wins over the Springboks. Their final place of second is something that they will want to repeat if not better as they build for the World Cup in France next year.
