Following one of the Qantas Wallabies' most successful years in 2015, Rugby fans will have plenty of opportunities to see their Wallabies heroes in action this year.
For the first time ever, Australia will host England in a three-Test battle for the Cook Cup, which is currently in England’s trophy cabinet. After the emotion-charged encounter between the Qantas Wallabies and the host nation in last year’s Rugby World Cup, where Australia stormed to a resounding 33-13 victory, both teams will have something to prove this year.
The anticipation for this series will be heightened, as it marks the first time rival coaches and ex-team mates Michael Cheika and Coach Eddie Jones will go head to head from the sidelines.
The games will be held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane (8pm, Saturday 11 June), AAMI Park in Melbourne (8pm, Saturday 18 June) and Allianz Stadium in Sydney (8pm, Saturday 25 June) - all premier rectangular stadiums where the atmosphere in the stands promises to be electrifying. Tickets will go on sale in April.
Australian Rugby Union COO Rob Clarke said: “Fans can expect some incredible Rugby from these matches. On paper it is arguably one of our biggest years of Rugby on home soil. Never before has England played in a three-Test series in Australia.”
“We are delighted to be hosting such world-class teams in some of Australia’s best Rugby venues.
“With the Wallabies currently ranked number 2 in the world, and demand for tickets already high, fans are urged to get in quickly to secure their seats.”
