Venues Confirmed For 2018 New Zealand Test Series

One minute Hull are playing in Australia, and before you know it, you’re watching an International side from down under play in Hull!

We’re not complaining though, as England will face New Zealand in a three-match series in the autumn of 2018. We can now confirm the dates and venues, and it’s good news for Hull fans!

1) KCOM Stadium

Saturday, October 27 (14:30) 

International rugby league will return to Hull for the first time since November 2015.

The last meeting between England and New Zealand here was a real fire cracker, with England claiming a comprehensive 26-12 win over the kiwis.

2) Anfield

Saturday, November 3 (14:30)

International Rugby League returns to Liverpool for only the second time. The first of course been last year’s Four Nations final between Australia and New Zealand which was witnessed by 40,000 spectators.

3) Elland Road

Sunday, November 11 (15:00)


Leeds will be the scene for the third and final test series fixture, but based on New Zealand’s form in this year’s RLWC, it could be a dead-rubber by the time this game kicks off.

It’s sure to be a rip-roaring affair, but the question I’m already wondering is, will any Hull FC players actually be involved in the action? Here’s hoping…
