The 2020 Rugby Championship draw is almost completely confirmed. Check out the full Rugby Championship fixtures here.

After being shortened last year, this year will see the Rugby Championship return to being a full six-round tournament.

The four nations – Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina – compete in a series of Tests to be crowned the greatest Southern Hemisphere nation. As always, the two Tests between Australia and New Zealand also double-up as the first two Bledisloe Cup Tests.

South Africa are the reigning Rugby Championship title-holders. The Wallabies finished second.
