New Zealand v Springboks Rugby – The Wellington Test will effectively be a dress rehearsal of the All Blacks and South Africa’s much-anticipated opening pool match of Rugby World Cup in Japan in September. It will be the only chance the two teams get to size each other up ahead of Rugby World Cup.
NZR chief executive Steve Tew said the double header was an ideal way to celebrate trans-Tasman rugby, and to showcase both teams and the trophies for which they played.
Grab your chance to back our team in black with the All Blacks only match in Wellington this year. It’s one of only three matches on home soil, with a big crowd expected to get behind the team before they head off to Rugby World Cup.
It’ll be a massive game against our old rivals with the Freedom Cup and Investec Rugby Championship on the line. The teams will feed off the big match intensity with plenty of passion on display on and off the field.
Get hold of your mates and act now to book your place at a huge night of international rugby.
