The host tournament Australia rugby and SAZAAR announced the 2020 Rugby Championship revised draw.
The 12-match event will be played across seven weeks. The match Australia Vs New Zealand moved from its original date 12 December to October 31st at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
The Argentina Vs South Africa venue was changed from ANZ Stadium in Sydney to the McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle.
The remaining draw will be unchanged. The five successive weeks of double headers start at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday 7 November. The match times have also been confirmed.
It has been a memorable match with the springboks since they won the world championship at the Japan Rugby World Cup against Argentina on the second match day last year. The First time that Tier One nation will play in a Test match doubleheader on 7 November 2020.
The ravel bubble between Australia and New Zealand started in New Zealand and the two parties reached an agreement on the revised commercial results so that the joint venture can consider other solutions. To solve our two main goals commercial viability and player benefits said Andy Marinos.
The SANZAAR and Rugby Australia, with the help of the governments of New South Wales, New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina proactively proposed various workable solutions which have now enabled us to adjust the draw. In the last revised draw, the game between Australia and New Zealand, originally scheduled for December 12th has been moved to 31st October at ANZ Stadium. The South Africa and Argentina match scheduled for 12 December at the ANZ Stadium has been moved to the McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle.
