I had a heart attack reading the GAGR news this morning. I'm watching the poms get smashed in my home city thanks very much.

Fear not, the itinerary is:

Qantas Wallabies v England, June 2016

Saturday 11 June
Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane

Saturday 18 June
AAMI Park, Melbourne

Saturday 25 June
Allianz Stadium, Sydney

Wonder how much revenue the ARU is giving up by playing at the latter 2 venues?

Anyway, much better for those that do go.

Really looking forward to this series. I'll definitely be grabbing some front row tickets to Suncorp

Shrewd move by the ARU then, probably only get 10k less gate in total.

Although if we come home with Bill, the ARU might try to get out of those deals..

I don't mind this. Better to have smaller stadiums packed out than big cavernous places not suitable for rugby only half full.

I agree. I prefer a sold out AAMI Park than a MCG only a quarter full or an Etihad only half full. Giving priority for rugby supporters (Rebels membership) and then for AFL supporters

Until the Victorians aren't able to fill a stadium for a test match, ARU must play at AAMI Park.

It's a better cover letter to the world rugby. I hate to see stadiums like Perth or Gold Coast with small crowds at Wallabies test matches.

Mixed feelings about this as an England fan. Yes the chance to beat you guys in Oz is fantastic! But, I do wonder what kind of state the players will be in after such a long season due to the RWC. We might have to take a few more reserve players which cold make the series pretty boring. We have more depth than most, but our 2nd string wouldn't really be up to the job.
