New Zealand Rugby (NZR) have announced the venues and dates for the All Blacks season, with Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Hamilton set to share hosting rights for the six home tests.
The All Blacks play Wales in Auckland on July 4 – a fitting venue for new Wales head coach and former Auckland and North Harbour coach Wayne Pivac.
The All Blacks are expected to announce Steve Hansen’s successor later this month – with Ian Foster and Scott Robertson believed to be the front-runners.
