World Rugby has moved back to "full tours" rather than these drips and drabs tours

We've been doing these three test tours since 2012.

2012 3 test series vs Ireland
2013 3 tests vs France
2014 3 tests vs England
2015 RWC no tour
2016 3 tests vs Wales
2017 The Lions

Prior to that we often used to play one of the PI teams in a one off test then a two test series vs a NH team.

It's a shame, really in the purest sense of the term, a shame France play NZ three times...

So much wasted potential. The last time they squared up, NZ totally won the first half, and France totally won the second half. No other team can be this jittery and inconsistent within one very same match because no other team is using their potential this bad.

A year before, with almost all their best players there France completely dominated the game and was within one possession of winning the Test match in the end, however much in vacation mode the AB were.

Wasteful, wasteful, wasteful potential... this series is not going to be pleasant for either side supporting the teams, nor for the neutral.

That Australia - Ireland series is shaping up nicely.

I just hope the Wallabies can compete with the number 1 team in Europe.

2019 is RWC year, and I presume it’ll be England in 2020? 2021 would work well.
