Wales, currently ranked 4th in World, will continue their mantra to test themselves against the best as they line up against all eight of their highest ranked opponents over the course of fourteen fixtures next year, including facing New Zealand three times and England twice.
Following the RBS 6 Nations, where Wales will take on four of their top nine ranked opposition, Warren Gatland’s side will then face England (ranked 8th) again at Twickenham on 29th May as they prepare for their three-Test summer tour to New Zealand to take on the top ranked World Champions.
Australia (2nd), Argentina (5th) and South Africa (3rd) will then visit Principality Stadium as part of Wales’ autumn campaign to round off a full set of fixtures against each of their fellow top nine ranked sides.
