On sale 22nd November! Well done RFL for a change! 

Shocked but excellent to see. Well done whoever is organising it at the RFL. 

Any venues hinted at?

Aye great stuff, hopefully there'll be a bit of noise on the app.

Hope this doesnt mean 3 RL grounds being used, fingers crossed for an exciting launch.

My worry is we’ll use the 3 x usual stadia suspects along the M62...

Kiwis are old news - get Fiji or Samoa over here!!

Seriously this will be great.  Kiwis will have a point to prove and hopefully a decent coach.  

Hopefully be looking at 50k+ stadiums but i suspect it will be Hudds / Hull / Wigan .

What do we want? I would probably go Etihad, new Spurs ground, Hull.

I like the olympic stadium as a Venue in London tbh and wished we'd have bought in on it post 2012. Anyhow Etihad and either Hull, Elland Rd, Newcastle or even Sheffield for the other 1. Hope NZ play France and/or Wales during the tour.

Replace Hull with Leeds, and id be ok with any of the major London grounds, but yep id be good with yours.

I just hope there is ambition.

Ill vote with my feet if its Wigan, Hudds and Hull, but surely London will be there.

Date probably chosen to piggy back on the interest generated by an England-NZ semi final.

This is brilliant though. I may even buy a ticket (rather than attempting to win some via a Chiltern Railways giveaway or similar).

Etihad would be good - the test against Oz years ago was really good (except the result)

If Doncaster or Leigh get a game we might as well all give up

Sadly, it's a year too soon for the new Sports Village between Hastings and Bexhill but I guess we can use that to host the mid season test in 2019.

if we are serious about expansion then Bristol city ground has to be considered as well as Coventry city ground 

Agreed. Bristol in 2018 before a team is launched for 2019 would be smart thinking.

Here's a question or idea should RL move its international calendar ? How about switching it to December/January , with 1st test Wednesday 26th December boxing day 2018  . 2nd test Saturday 29th December 2018 . 3rd test Tuesday 1st January 2019

Excellent.  

Being sent to Coventy doesn't bother me.  My kids and I really enjoyed the 4N there.  Tough job for the RFL to please all but this news  is good RFL work well done.

Can't be true!?

Huddersfield, London and Wigan i'm guessing

Love it if one was at Headingley (if finished) but the re development is actually losing capacity which seems crazy.
