The Flying Fijians will play two Tests against New Zealand while Tonga and Samoa will play off for a place to the 2023 Rugby World Cup next month in New Zealand.

Tonga will play New Zealand on July 3 before the Flying Fijians face the All Blacks on July 10 and July 17. Samoa will face New Zealand Maori on July 3. Tonga plays Samoa on July 10 and July 17 for the 2023 Rugby World Cup qualifiers with the second encounter to be the curtain raiser to the Fiji match against New Zealand on July 17 in Hamilton.

The annual Pacific Tri Nations competition which is usually played in Suva, Nukualofa or Apia has been put on hold from last year because of the restrictions imposed by the Covid 19 pandemic.
