Wallabies to use Rugby Championship as Springboard to 2015 Rugby World Cup

by RUGBY.com.au staff

The Qantas Wallabies will have a truncated Rugby Championship in 2015 to prepare for the Rugby World Cup against the two best teams in the world in New Zealand and South Africa and a rising Argentina keen to prove its Rugby abilities.

The Qantas Wallabies will have two home Test matches with the Springboks in Brisbane and the All Blacks in Sydney in Bledisloe I.

The 2015 Rugby Championship will be the final opportunity for Test matches for the Qantas Wallabies before departing to London for the Rugby World Cup where Australia has been placed in Pool A alongside England, Wales, Fiji and Uruguay.
