The Australian Rugby Union today announced the dates for the Wallabies 2014 Spring Tour at the end of this year.
The tour will include matches against the Barbarians, Wales, France, Ireland and England throughout November.
Wallabies coach, Ewen McKenzie is looking forward to the challenge which lies ahead.
“The Spring Tour last year was the most successful in five years for the Qantas Wallabies and we’ll be looking to improve on that come November.
“With the Rugby World Cup just a year away in England, we have scheduled five games against five teams that will bring a different style to each.
“We’ve got England and Wales in our pool for the Rugby World Cup and big improvers in France and Ireland, who just won the Six Nations. That will be a good challenge for us.
“We’ll also get a chance to play two games at Twickenham – the venue where two of our pool games will take place – as part of a tour that should help further our preparations ahead of the World Cup.”
