How to watch Australia vs Wales: Channel, schedule and kick-off times for Wallabies rugby internationals | Sporting News Australia

Date:

The Wallabies will look to get the Joe Schmidt era off to a winning start when they play Wales in two international matches in July.

The Wallabies are looking to rebound after an awful 2023, which saw them lose every game at the Rugby Championship as well as going out of the World Cup in the pool stage for the first time ever.

They faced Wales in that ill-fated tournament, and they were given a 40-6 hiding in Lyon, so the Wallabies will have plenty of motivation to put things right and build momentum ahead of The Rugby Championship in August and September.

The Sporting News details how fans can catch all of the action in the July International Tests against Wales.

Wallabies 38 man squad for July Tests

New coach Joe Schmidt has already named his 38-man squad for the July Tests – the Wallabies also face a match against Georgia – and there are some notable absentees.

Rob Leota and David Porecki are recovering from injuries and haven’t been named, whilst Carter Gordon and Mark Nawaqanitawase were both omitted from the squad, with the pair securing early releases from their Rugby Australia contracts to join the NRL’s Gold Coast Titans and Sydney Roosters respectively.

The Wallabies squad contains 13 uncapped players, including Alex Hodgman, who previously represented the All Blacks.
