Under the new government guidelines, the Wallabies will be able to train fully as a squad four days after arriving in the country, dependent on all squad members returning a negative Covid-19 test on day three.

Two more Bledisloe Cup matches will be played in Australia as part of the Rugby Championship, making it a four-match series.

The All Blacks have held the Bledisloe Cup since 2003.
