Wallabies fans will be treated to two home games against the world champion Springboks after Rugby Australia confirmed its fixture list for 2024.
Australia will host South Africa in back to back Rugby Championship Tests in Brisbane on August 10 and Perth on August 17.
But new coach Joe Schmidt’s first assignment will be consecutive Tests against Wales in Sydney on July 6 and Melbourne on July 13.
“You get Wales first up, who put 40 points on the Wallabies. Well, what a fantastic turnaround challenge that is.”
“The Wallabies will be looking for a reset this year, with Joe Schmidt to lead them against four high quality Test opponents on home soil, including Georgia who we look forward to welcoming to Australia for the first time,” RA chief executive Phil Waugh said.
