2019 end-of-season Tests schedule

Rivalries will be reignited and the passion palpable when international rugby league takes centre stage after the NRL season.

A Trans-Tasman double-header starts the festivities with Australia and New Zealand to meet in Wollongong on October 25 for mouthwatering women's and men's clashes.

The men's fixture marks the Kangaroos' initial match in the Oceania Cup format and the first time the rival teams have faced off at WIN Stadium.

The touring Great Britain side will break an 11-year Test absence against Tonga on October 26 in Hamilton.

Fans are set for a triple treat on November 2 as Samoa take on Fiji, the Kangaroos play Tonga and the Kiwis tackle Great Britain - all at Eden Park.

Another double header on November 9 pits Papua New Guinea against Fiji, while the Kiwis and Great Britain go at it again.

To cap off the end-of-year Test schedule, Papua New Guinea play the Lions before what's sure to be a passionate crowd in Port Moresby on November 16.
