British and Irish Lions

The British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa is at the headlines of a busy July. That show in which 25 of the top 30 ranked unions are in action with several hosts. Or guests for the first time since the pandemic. Including the South African World Cup and the Japan-hosted Rugby World Cup 2023.

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to cause disruption. The basic principle for the calendar the accessories agreed in San Francisco in 2017. Where is neither possible nor practical to respect this timetable, accommodation rights reversed with key agreements fulfilled.

This contingency has not been possible for covid-19 reasons. World Rugby has facilitated discussions to confirm an alternative timetable for teams consisting of a minimum of two matches for unions seeking replacement matches. 

This means that Argentina, Japan, the United States, and Canada will now travel to the UK and Ireland, New Zealand will host tests against Fiji and Georgia will travel to South Africa. Samoa’s 2023 tonga rugby world cup qualifier will also be held on two stages in New Zealand.

And creating a Pacific centre in the country across the July window. The 2023 RWC qualifiers also will continue in Europe and start in Africa and South America. The fans can also buy New Zealand Rugby World Cup Tickets from our website.

World Rugby President

World Rugby President Sir Bill Beaumont said: “It a noble effort from everyone involved. While there is light at the end of the tunnel with regard to COVID-19 in many countries. The challenges remain present, dynamic, and impactful. And I would therefore like to thank the trade unions, their respective governments, partners, and trade. And broadcasting actors for their flexibility and full commitment to the process.

“Fans around the world can now anticipate an exciting program of men’s Test matches involving a minimum of 25 teams. Which can be a welcome spectacle for everybody. The road to the 2023 Rugby World Cup also continues with key qualifiers for Samoa and Tonga. And, of course, we expect a fascinating series of British and Irish Lions.”

World Rugby vice-chairman Bernard Laporte added: “Fans from everywhere the planet will rejoice during this window of international rugby. I am glad that the matches between teams in the northern and southern hemispheres can finally take place. It will be a prelude to the exciting Rugby World Cup that we all look forward to in 2023.”

World Rugby and trade unions will continue to closely monitor the dynamic situation of covid-19 and respond if necessary. While any revision of the November international program will confirm in due time. World Rugby Association will also retain its high-performance support from emerging countries ahead of the July Tests.”
