Rugby Australia is pleased to confirm the international fixtures for both the Wallaroos inbound Tests against Fijiana and Japan in May and the Wallabies 2022 eToro England Series in July.

Every Wallabies and Wallaroos Test will be ad-free, live and on demand with extended coverage on Stan Sport. Every home Wallabies Test will also be live, free-to-air on the 9Network.

In what will be the first Test they have played in Queensland since 1997, the Wallaroos will kick off their year against Fijiana at Suncorp Stadium as part of a double header on Friday 6 May, with the Reds hosting the Highlanders in a Harvey Norman Super Rugby Pacific clash.

The following Tuesday May 10 will see the side take on Japan at Bond University, Gold Coast, for the last of the Tests forming key preparations for the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand later this year.
