Product Description

2020 Autumn Series Wales v New Zealand

Wales will face 2019 World Cup winners South Africa and New Zealand in two of their four 2020 Autumn Internationals.

Following the 2020 Six Nations, Wales face New Zealand on a two-test Tour in July after first travelling to face the Japan “Brave Blossoms” on 27 June. Wales’ last tour of New Zealand saw them suffer three defeats in 2016, including a 46-6 loss in Dunedin in their final game. They are yet to claim victory against the All Blacks in ten previous meetings away from home.

The Autumn Series 2020 carries extra jeopardy as the draw for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France will be made following its conclusion. Wales currently lie fifth in the World ranking system, but will be looking to finish the November matches in fourth spot or higher in order to secure a place in Band One of the draw and therefore avoid fellow top four teams when the World Cup pools are established.

Wayne Pivac’s Wales will face almost the entire top 10 opposition in the coming year meaning their destiny is in their own hands and maximum ranking points will be available if they are needed.

Alun Wyn Jones was named as Captain for the 2020 Six Nations campaign having led them to the Grand Slam in 2019 and a place in the Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals. Wales were then coached by Warren Gatland who is in charge of the Lions in 2021 when they tour South Africa and he is anticipating Jones being in the selection mix. Having previously coached Connacht, Ireland, London Wasps and Waikato,Gatland was the hugely successful Head Coach of Wales from 2007 to 2019, alongside 3 Lions tours which will become 4 in 2021.

Alun Wyn Jones will be 38 when the 2023 World Cup starts but he hasn’t ruled out the chance of being there, in what would be a record-equalling 5th tournament.
