THE WALLABIES will open their 2012 season with a historic midweek test against Scotland in Newcastle.
The one-off international, to be played at Ausgrid Stadium on June 5, will be the first time Australia has played a test in that part of the country.
It will be the first meeting between the two sides since 2009, when Scotland beat the Wallabies 9-8 at Murrayfield.
It is one of four internationals the Wallabies will play in June, with the Australian Rugby Union also confirming the venues for the three-test series against Wales.
The first match between the two sides will be played at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium on June 9, with the second to be held at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium on June 16 and the third at the Sydney Football Stadium on June 23.
It will be the Wallabies’ first test at the SFS since 1998.« Back to Articles
