The End of Year Tour, also known as the Autumn Internationals in the Northern Hemisphere, is a series of international rugby union matches between Southern Hemisphere countries, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa – and the European countries, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
In 2017 Rugby Championship winners, New Zealand travelled to France, Scotland and Wales, whilst the losers of the Championship, Argentina, faced England, Ireland and Italy – with the latter two countries also hosting South Africa. The Springboks also faced their June test series opposition, France, whom they had beaten 3–0, before ending their tour in Wales. Having beaten the All Blacks in the third Bledisloe Cup Test match in October, Australia travelled to play Wales, England and Scotland, the latter of whom had beaten the Wallabies in Sydney during the June internationals.
The 2018 End of Year Tour will see South Africa play against England, Scotland and possibly France and Wales, who are still to be confirmed. This is always a tour not to be missed, as it allows for exceptional rugby, as well as an opportunity to travel to an overseas destination.
