Wallabies headed to Optus Stadium

The Wallabies are headed west to take on England in a blockbuster Test at Optus Stadium in July.


It will be the first time in 12-years that the two sides have met in Perth and it will be held as the first match of a three match series on Saturday July 2.


Game two will be played in Brisbane on July 9 and the final match in Sydney on July 16.


RA chief executive Andy Marinos said the three Tests would be a highlight of Australia’s sporting calendar.

“To be able to host them in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney is a really exciting opportunity for all Australians and those travelling from overseas.


“The rivalry between Australia and England is one that runs deep across many sports, and we look forward to writing another chapter in its history this July.”


The Springboks were due to play the Wallabies at Optus as part of the 2020 Rugby Championship, but the game was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
