All Blacks fly to San Diego to face Fiji.

On July 19, New Zealand All Blacks will play its first-ever home test overseas when it takes on South Pacific foe Fiji at San Diego State’s Snapdragon Stadium.

It will be Fiji’s first visit to the United States and the first meeting between the All Blacks and the Flying Fijians at a neutral venue.

In their inaugural season under new coach Scott Robertson, the All Blacks will play 14 test matches across nine countries, including the one in San Diego. Robertson’s first tests as manager will be on July 6 in Dunedin and July 13 in Auckland against England. Next, they take a plane to San Diego to play Fiji.

Rugby Championship home tests between New Zealand and Argentina are scheduled for August 10 in Wellington and August 17 in Auckland. The world champion South Africa will thereafter be the opponent in Johannesburg on August 31 and Cape Town on September 7.

All Blacks v Flying Fijians: Test matches expected to be announced next month

The Flying Fijians and the All Blacks will square off in two test matches this year; an official announcement is anticipated the following month.

Both games will be played outside of New Zealand, as far as RNZ Pacific is aware.

The All Blacks’ last meeting with the Fijians took place in July 2021; in two Test series played in Dunedin and Hamilton, the visitors lost 57-23 and 60-13.

Although RNZ Pacfic has not received a response from NZR or Fiji Rugby, it is known that an announcement is anticipated at some point next month.

Peter Mazey, the chairman of the Fiji Rugby Trustees Board, responded, “There is no update yet,” when pressed for more information.

The RugbyPass website quoted NZR chief executive Mark Robinson’s interview with Sky Sports’ “The Breakdown” to indicate that the team was working on test matches against Fiji in 2024, with one likely to be in the July Test window, even though neither the Fiji Rugby Union nor New Zealand Rugby have made an official announcement as of yet.

Talks were reportedly taking place for a potential historic first test between the All Blacks and Fiji on Fijian soil, as Robinson had disclosed at the time.
