The Wallabies fixtures are generally spread out into three groups of Tests, the July Tests, Rugby Championship (within which the Bledisloe Cup takes place), and the Spring Tour.
With the COVID-19 pandemic hopefully subsiding, the Wallabies should be able to play a more normal suite of Tests in 2021.
So far, the Bledisloe Cup, Spring Tour matches have been officially announced, as well as France’s three-Test tour in July. Rugby AU CEO Andy Marinos has stated he expects the Rugby Championship to begin around three weeks after the France series, but no concrete dates have been announced. We’ll update this page as soon as there is any further news on that front.
