The 2020 Rugby Championship was replaced by a Tri-Nations series after South Africa announced it wouldn’t be travelling to Australia. The Tri-Nations took place in October, November and Decemeber with all matches played in Australia. Check out the Tri-Nations Series fixtures here.

While the ongoing coronavirus pandemic initially caused the competition to be postponed, SANZAAR confirmed a new, six-week iteration of the tournament to be hosted in Australia late in the year. Every match was played in New South Wales with the exception of one, which took place in Queensland.

New Zealand won the Tri Nations, their 11th Tri Nations series win and 17th combined Tri Nations-Rugby Championship title.
