Tickets to the second instalment of The Rugby Championship went on sale yesterday in Australia and fans are being encouraged to move quickly to secure their seat.
Just six weeks after the Lions leave the Wallabies will return to action at ANZ Stadium in Sydney when they take on their trans-Tasman rivals, the World Champion All Blacks.
Last time the two sides met in Brisbane they shared the honours with an epic 18-all draw a result the Qantas Wallabies will be hoping to better on Saturday 17 August.
The All Blacks are the holders of The Rugby Championship title, and before that draw held court, having lost just three Tests to the Wallabies under Robbie Deans in 18 fixtures.
The World Champions will also be chasing their 100th Test win against the Wallabies, who will no doubt be stronger for the battle of the Lions Series, especially if they come back to win the next two matches.
The opening Test of The Championship will again double as the first Bledisloe Cup Test of the year and having not held the coveted piece of trans-Tasman silverware for 11 years the Qantas Wallabies will be eager to go one up in the best of three series.
Three weeks later, on Saturday 7 September, the Qantas Wallabies will return to Suncorp Stadium to take on the Springboks.
The following week the Qantas Wallabies will head West for their final Test on home soil in 2013.
Perth’s Patersons Stadium will welcome the Pumas for the first time on Saturday 14 September for their Test against the Qantas Wallabies.
Last year’s Championship new comers, the Pumas, ran the Qantas Wallabies close when they met on the Gold Coast last year.
