The All Blacks will not host a three-Test tour in New Zealand next year – instead they will be hosting two Six Nations sides in July 2020.
Outgoing CEO of Rugby New Zealand, Steve Tew, today confirmed that both Wales and Scotland will travel to New Zealand in July 2020 for games against the All Blacks.
With Steve Hansen set to step down as All Blacks boss after the Rugby World Cup in Japan, the games will be the first Test matches for the new boss of the reigning world champions.
Tew confirmed the All Blacks would host Wales twice (back-to-back) – on their first tour under new Kiwi coach Wayne Pivac – and Scotland once in July as Hansen’s replacement as head coach undertakes his first assignment.
