The Australian Rugby Union has announced that Canberra’s getting a second test match in two years!
This time against Fiji on 5 June, 2010.
- “Canberra embraced the return of International Rugby,” said ARU Managing Director and CEO John O’Neill.
“There was a real buzz about the city and the media coverage was great.
“When it came to deciding where we would stage the Test against Fiji next season, the experience of this year certainly weighed in Canberra’s favour.”
