2023 will be a big year for some teams in the rugby world, and Wales is very much one of those teams.
The Rugby World Cup is the big feature for next year, with the tournament being held in France coming towards the end of the year.
Before that will be the yearly Six Nations tournament, which will take place at the start of the year, where Wales will be looking to improve on their 2022 result.
There is a fairly large gap between those competitions, though, in which the national side will be looking to prepare themselves for the world stage.
Wales will be looking to get their team ready by playing a series of World Cup warm-up games against strong opponents, with the games named the Summer Series.
Find the information on the games that will be played, as well as how you can get premium hospitality to them to experience the action in the best possible way.Buy Wales Rugby hospitality
When, where and what will be Wales’ Rugby World Cup warm-up matches?
Wales will want to make sure they are as ready for the World Cup as possible. As of writing, they are sitting at the bottom of the Six Nations table, with the team struggling on and off the field.
The break after the Six Nations may give them the well-needed time to sort things out, regroup and go out later in the year, ready to fight on.
The first time the rugby world will see if Wales have been able to improve will be with their World Cup Summer Series warm-up games.
Their Summer Series games will be a proper challenge for Wales, as they will be facing the formidable forces and World Champions England and South Africa.
They will face England twice, once at England’s home of Twickenham and once at Wales’ Principality Stadium. Here are the dates of the games:
- Saturday 5th August - Wales vs England at Principality Stadium
- Saturday 12th August - England vs Wales at Twickenham Stadium
- Saturday 19th Wales - Wales vs South Africa at Principality Stadium
These games are set to be exciting, hotly-contested affairs. The matchup against South Africa will be their first game against the Springboks since the 2022 Wales tour of South Africa in the summer of the year before, where they lost two games to one.
As for their England games, this will be yet another shot at their neighbours, having already played them earlier in the year in the Six Nations.
That Six Nations game will be fuel to the fire for these matchups, depending on who came away the victor.
Preparations for the World Cup will have already been in full swing by the time these games come around, with the team having been through tough intensive training camps in June and July.
It will also be the final opportunity for all players involved to make their mark and challenge for a spot on the plane to France to be part of head coach Wayne Pivac’s World Cup squad. The Principality has seen some spectacular performances over the years. Check out our top five moments.
