The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians will get a chance to play against the Wallabies at the new Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville later this year.
As part of Rugby Australia’s attempt to spread and grow the game across the country.
The Wallabies will play the Flying Fijians in Townsville on July 18 in a one-off Test that follows the two-Test series against Ireland.
Townsville will play host to its first Wallabies Test when Australia take on the Flying Fijians in a one-off Test that follows the two-Test series against Ireland on July 18, with the Wallaroos to play world no.3 Canada at the 25,000 seat stadium.
The Wallabies last hosted Fiji in 2017 and last year beat them 39-21 in their World Cup opener in Sapporo Japan.
The Flying Fijians Test shapes as a vital one for the Wallabies ahead of the Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship.
With two tough Tests against Ireland preceding the Fiji Test, the Wallabies will want to secure a confidence-building performance against the Pacific Island nation as they take the first steps in the post-Michael Cheika era.
Fiji will also be starting life under new coach Vern Cotter, with the former Scotland coach taking over from John McKee.
