Wallabies to host France at Allianz Stadium

Test rugby returns to Sydney's Allianz Stadium this year with an afternoon Test between Australia and France in June.

The Wallabies will host fifth-ranked France in three Tests during the June window, starting in Brisbane on June 7, Melbourne on June 14 and Sydney on June 21.

It will be the first time in five years Les Bleus have travelled to Australia. They are in contention alongside England and Ireland to claim the Six Nations title this weekend.

It will be the first of two Test matches Sydney will host this year and the first in two years with an afternoon kick-off time. The Wallabies clinched a clean sweep of Wales at an afternoon Test at the SCG in 2012.

The Wallabies will play New Zealand in the opening Bledisloe Cup Test at ANZ Stadium on August 16.

Tickets to the Sydney Test at Allianz Stadium range from $24 to $139 and go on sale at 9am on May 6.
