Wales v New Zealand

Wales v New Zealand

Date: Saturday 25th November 2017

Venue: Principality Stadium, Cardiff

Kick Off: 5:15pm

Wales will face the mighty New Zealand All Blacks at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 25th November during the 2017 Under Armour Series. This will be the third of four autumn internationals to be played by Wales in 2017.

Wales and New Zealand have contested a total of 33 rugby test matches since their first meeting in 1905. Wales have won just three of those matches, whilst New Zealand have won 30 matches.

It has been almost 64 years since Wales last tasted victory against the All Blacks, and yet it all started so promisingly with Wales achieving three victories from their first four encounters with the All Blacks between 1905 and 1953!

Interesting Fact: The tradition of singing your country's national anthem before an international match began when Wales responded to the All Black's Haka by singing Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau before their match in 1905.
