Fixtures for the 2022 Bledisloe Cup series between the Wallabies and All Blacks have been released.

It was announced in late February that the series would be reduced from three matches to two for at least the next four years.


The Bledisloe is part of the Rugby Championship with the first game is locked in for Melbourne with a rare Thursday night game to be played. The first game will be on Thursday September 15 with the return leg is a week later at Auckland’s Eden Park. 

The reason for a mid-week game was to avoid a clash with the AFL and NRL over venue availability for their finals series.


The All Blacks retained the trophy in 2021 after winning Game 1 33-25 and following up in Game 2 with a 57-22 win. The New Zealand side completed a clean sweep with a 38-21 win in Perth.
