Wallabies to face England in three-Test series in July, Wallaroos have Tests against Fijiana, Japan in May before Women’s Rugby World Cup

The Wallabies will play Eddie Jones’s England side in the first SCG Test match since 1986, while the Wallaroos have locked in two Tests next month ahead of the Women’s Rugby World Cup.

Details of the Wallabies three-Test series against the 2019 World Cup finalists were confirmed on Tuesday, with Perth, Brisbane and Sydney to host games on consecutive Saturdays in July.

The SCG Test, on July 16, comes after last year’s clash against France was shifted from the venue due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They will also meet in Perth for the first time in 10 years, while England were the last nation to beat Australia at their Lang Park stronghold in 2016.

“We talk a lot about wanting to challenge ourselves against the best teams in the world, and three Test matches in a row against England is the perfect opportunity to do that,” Wallabies coach Dave Rennie said.
