England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales All Confirm Their Summer Test Schedules

Summer schedule.

With summer tours out of the question once again this year due to the ongoing pandemic, the home nations have been forced to make alternative plans.

The British and Irish Lions tour is going ahead as planned in South Africa but the home nations will instead play a series of fixtures at home against the likes of the USA, Japan, Canada and Argentina.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

England will take on both the USA and Canada with their ‘A’ team set to return for a fixture against a Scotland ‘A’ team. Ireland meanwhile will host both Japan and USA, no doubt hoping for revenge against the former following their shock 2019 Rugby World Cup defeat.

Scotland will travel to take on Romania along with the previously mentioned ‘A’ game, while Wales will host Argentina twice after they’ve taken on Canada.
