AllBlacks 25 April 2022
Clover XV has beaten the All Blacks three times in their last five meetings – including a 29-20 win in Dublin in November – but have lost all 12 of the Tests they have already played in New Zealand.
Two matches are scheduled against Argentina and one against Australia
In addition to these three matches against Ireland, the All Blacks will also play three home rugby matches in 2022: August 27 in Christchurch, then September 3 in Hamilton, both times against Argentine Pumas, and then September 24. In Auckland vs Australia.
The duel between the Wallabies and the All Blacks will come a week after the first meeting in Brisbane between the two teams as part of the Bledisloe Cup, a prestigious annual competition between the contenders, which this year has been reduced due to the pandemic to two matches instead of three.
New Zealand Rugby also announced a women’s four-way tournament – New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the USA – in June, four months before the country hosts the Women’s World Cup.
