A test match against Wales has been added to the All Blacks’ rugby schedule at the end of the year.

The New Zealand and Welsh Rugby Unions have confirmed that the test would be held at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on November 7 according to NZPA.


The All Blacks will return to Cardiff having defeated the Welsh side 29-9 last November on their way to achieving the team’s third successful grand slam over the Home Unions.


Wales famously stood their ground for an extended period following the Haka the last time the two teams met and the time before that the All Blacks were forced to perform the Haka inside the changerooms (pictured).

The test will be part of the celebrations of the 10-year anniversary for Millennium Stadium which was developed for the Rugby World Cup in 1999.

In addition to the Wales test, the All Blacks will play Italy at Milan on November 14, England at London on November 21, France at Marseilles on November 28, and the Barbarians at London a week later.
