The June Tests in 2017 have been announced, with Australia hosting Fiji, Scotland and Italy in a trio of afternoon matches over the course of the Super Rugby break.

Australia’s home Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup matches have also been confirmed, although many of their away fixtures are yet to be announced.

The Wallabies will kick off the Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup for 2017 when they host the All Blacks in Sydney on August 19, before a match in Perth against the Springboks on September 9.

A home game against the Pumas will follow, although the venue for that fixture will not be announced until early 2017.

For the first time since 2014, Australia will get to host two Bledisloe Cup fixtures, with Suncorp Stadium hosting the third and final match between the Wallabies and All Blacks on October 21.

The remainder of the draw for the 2017 Rugby Championship is yet to be announced, but we’ll have the fixtures here on The Roar as soon as they’re available.
