New Zealand confirmed a historic clash in San Diego with Fiji

As part of their 2024 Test Schedule, the New Zealand confirmed a historic matchup with Fiji in San Diego. This matchup marks the beginning of a new era for the squad under head coach Scott Robertson.

In his debut season on the international scene, the new head coach will lead the team through 14 Test matches. The series will begin in the middle of the year with two matches against England, which will be contested in Dunedin and Auckland. Later, the team will travel to the United States to play Fiji.

the South American team’s “mini-tour,” Robertson’s first Rugby Championship match will take place in Wellington against Argentina in early August. A week later, the All Blacks will play Los Pumas at Eden Park.

Before playing the Springboks in back-to-back Test matches before travelling back to Australasia for the Bledisloe Cup, the All Blacks embark on their own mini-tour.

In the Autumn Nations Series, New Zealand will play Japan, England, Ireland, France, and Italy to end the year. Robertson is eager to lead the All Blacks and feels that playing England in his debut match is a great way to get things going.

Going up to Auckland, where we have a great record that we are really proud of, is a great start for us, and playing England under the roof in Dunedin is a great start as well, Robertson stated.

The trip to San Diego by plane is thrilling in and of itself. The Fijians are well-versed in the globe and will appear anywhere. Many Kiwis, as far as I know, will also travel there.

Robertson, like any All Blacks manager, is especially eager to take on the Springboks later in the season.

We have two historic Test matches coming up: Ellis Park in the Highveld and Cape Town. I know a lot of Kiwis are looking forward to those. Playing against the world champions is an excellent opportunity to learn more about ourselves.
