The 2021 Rugby Championship fixtures have been revealed.
South Africa re-joined the competition after sitting out last year, meaning it will revert back to being The Rugby Championship again. South Africa were scheduled to host their two matches against Argentina, with the rest of the tournament to be played in Australia and New Zealand.
However, New Zealand and Australia’s coronavirus situation has caused havoc with fixtures with the All Blacks pushing back on their trip to Perth by a week.
New Zealand rugby also confirmed that their home fixtures against the Springboks would no longer be held in New Zealand with the Rugby Championship now being moved to Queensland.
All times AEST. All Wallabies matches to be televised on the Nine Network and available to stream on Stan Sport.
Australia’s two fixtures against New Zealand are also the second and third Tests of the Bledisloe Cup.
