New Wales coach Wayne PIvac will face a stiff test on his first tour with the side. Kiwi Wayne Pivac handed three-test All Blacks series for first tour with Wales .
No pressure, then. Kiwi Wayne Pivac’s first tour as Wales rugby coach will see him take on the biggest challenge in the game in New Zealand in 2020.
It has been reported in the UK that Wales will play three tests against the All Blacks in July of 2020 to kick off the new post-RWC international tours schedule.
That looms as an early litmus test for the Kiwi who takes over from compatriot Warren Gatland as Wales national coach following the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
Pivac is currently head coach of Scarlets in Wales where he has enjoyed some notable success since first joining them as an assistant in 2014.
The Kiwi will be an “observer” at next year’s global tournament and takes the reins after that for what is thought to be a December clash against the Barbarians, followed by the 2020 Six Nations which will include visits to the Aviva Stadium and Twickenham to face, respectively, Ireland and England.
