New Zealand Rugby (NZR) has today announced Wellington's Westpac Stadium will host South Africa on 27 July 2019, in a condensed (due to Rugby World Cup) Investec Rugby Championship. "Next year's repeat match up promises plenty of excitement and, for All Blacks fans at least, a result reversal".

New Zealand Rugby chief executive Steve Tew said New Zealand would stage a world class event but expressed sympathy for Australia's failed bid.

"We know that All Blacks tests typically pump between $7-$9 million into the regional economy, providing a big boost during the traditionally slower tourism winter months to the accommodation, hospitality and retail sectors".

The revised structure comes a year after Ireland were robbed of a finals berth despite claiming more victories than the winless Samoa and host nation New Zealand, who were both were eliminated in the quarterfinals.

"I'm hugely excited the event will be held here", she said.

It will be the only chance the two teams get to size each other up ahead of Rugby World Cup.

"When you go through this process you need to take stock and have a look and see", she said. "They had a very strong bid".

It is believed that numerous tournament's biggest hitters - including the four home nations of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland - voted for Australia but its Southern Hemisphere rivals and some nations without teams in the competition put their votes behind New Zealand. "This will just give us an opportunity to do that".

"We have already said we're keen to host the men's World Cup in 2027 so all of our focus moves to that now".
