The Welsh Rugby Union has unveiled the fixtures for the autumn international series that will include clashes against Australia and New Zealand.

The series will kick-start with Wales taking on All Blacks on 5th November following which they will take on Argentina on 12th November.

Their third game of the campaign will be against Georgia on 19th November before ending the series with a clash against Australia scheduled on 26th.

Wales will also be heading to South Africa for a three-game series against South Africa in July and WRU chief executive Steve Phillips is excited about the prospect of facing the top teams with the World Cup scheduled next year.

"In international rugby you always want to test yourselves against the best teams and we will be facing each of the very best sides in the world in the year ahead.

"With a three-Test tour of South Africa preceding the 2022 Autumn Nations Series, we will be taking on the full set of Rugby Championship opposition.

"These matches, together with the 2023 Six Nations Championship, will form a vital part of Rugby World Cup preparation."
