The Kangaroos have been drawn with Fiji, Scotland and Italy in the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England, which was conducted by Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace.
The Kangaroos will face New Zealand in a trans-Tasman double-header in Wollongong, the NRL has announced.
The Jillaroos and the Kiwi Ferns will also meet at WIN Stadium, with the matches on October 25.
“Rugby league has a home in the Illawarra, so we’re delighted to bring the pinnacle of rugby league back to Wollongong for the first time in five years,” NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said.
