Wales will feature in three Tests in the revised July international fixtures confirmed by the Welsh Rugby Union on Monday.

Wayne Pivac's side will begin their summer series with a clash against Canada on 3rd July following which they will take on Argentina in a two-match series on 10th and 17th July.

Principality Stadium will be hosting all the three games and it will also be the first visit for Canada to Cardiff in 13 years. The two teams have faced each other 12 times with Wales winning 11 out of it while Canada emerged victorious with a 26-24 margin during their encounter in 1993 at Cardiff Arms Park.

Wales head coach Wayne Pivac is excited about the fixtures against Canada and Argentina as look to build towards the 2023 World Cup.

“We are looking forward to this summer, the opportunity it presents, and we are delighted to have three tests confirmed,” said Pivac to the official website of WRU.

“It is disappointing not to have the opportunity to tour Argentina, especially on the back of our 2020 tour to New Zealand being cancelled, but in the current climate it is completely understandable.

“What is important is we have games and as we have said all along, this summer is a huge opportunity for us. We are delighted and proud to have 10 players selected for the British & Irish Lions, it is reward for all their hard work and we wish them all the best this summer.

“With those players away we always earmarked this summer as an important development opportunity for us.

“It is an opportunity to bring players into this environment, look at them closely and expose them to test match rugby. It is also an opportunity for current internationals to step-up into further leadership roles, so on both counts it is an important camp for us looking ahead to RWC2023.”
