Bledisloe Cup Test

The Rugby Championship

The Wallabies are training on the Gold Coast ahead of the first Bledisloe Cup Test against New Zealand in Auckland on August 7.

Rugby Australia (RA) has confirmed the Wallabies’ remaining domestic fixtures for 2021, headlined by a return to Canberra for the first time in four years.

They announced the Wallabies will face Argentina at GIO Stadium on October 2 as part of the Rugby Championship.

Dave Rennie’s men will also play the Pumas at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle as they look to go one better than their 15-all draw in 2020.

This comes after RA confirmed the Wallabies will take on the All Blacks in Perth on Saturday, August 21 and South Africa on September 12 and 18 at the Sydney Cricket Ground and Suncorp Stadium respectively.

“Rugby fans across Australia are once again in for a festival of Rugby with the 2021 Rugby Championship being played in Australia and New Zealand,” RA chief executive Andy Marinos said in a statement.
