Kangaroos vs Kiwis Rugby in WIN Stadium has been announced as the venue for an end-of-season Tests between Australia at New Zealand.
The Jillaroos will tackle the Kiwis in Wollongong on October 25, before the Kangaroos clash with New Zealand.
“Rugby league has a home in the Illawarra, so we’re delighted to bring the pinnacle of rugby league back to Wollongong for the first time in five years,” NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said.
“We recorded one of the best-ever attendances for WIN Stadium the last time Test match rugby league was played in Wollongong.
“So, I’ve got no doubt the local support will be strong and compliment those travelling fans who can’t wait to be at the stadium come October 25.”
The Roos vs Kiwis Rugby Test at WIN Stadium would also be included in the Oceania Series, while Fiji, Samoa and Papua New Guinea are expected to play each other during the mid-year Pacific Test and at the end of the season.
The Lions will travel to Port Moresby to play the Kumuls on November 16 after their second Test against the Kiwis the previous weekend.
