The calendar for November Wales was confirmed and on the path of the Red Dragons they will cross South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Fiji that will arrive in Cardiff later this year. Finally, The Pumas will not be from the game.
Thousands of match tickets have gone on sale and the Welsh Rugby Union is confident of having 74,000 spectators at the Principality Stadium.
“There is a huge appetite for rugby at the moment,” said WRU CEO Steve Phillips, adding: “More than two-thirds of the population tuned in to watch Wales play each of their Six Nations matches in February. Tournaments like this one in November’s international window generate hope and pride and give the people of Wales something to look forward to in tough times. “
The All Blacks will arrive in Cardiff for the first time since 2017 of two teams that have not met since the playoff for third place at the 2019 World Cup.
However, the game will take place outside of World Rugby’s international window, meaning that England-based Wales players like Dan Biggar, Taulupe Faletau and Louis Rees-Zammit will not be available for the selection of the match against New Zealand.
