THE Fiji Rugby Union has confirmed a test match with Wallabies that will be held in Australia after the Pacific Nations Cup against Tonga and Samoa next year.

The FRU chief executive officer John O’Connor confirmed with Times Sports on the inclusion of Wallabies into the 2020 calendar.

“Next year in terms of our program for the PNC, we play Tonga, Samoa but we will play the Wallabies in Australia because we wanted to host them too in Fiji but unfortunately the discussion didn’t fall through,” said O’Connor.

“So next year we will play Tonga, Samoa and the Wallabies and in the northern hemisphere we will be playing Wales and the French Barbarian and another team to be announced.”
