The Wallabies will attempt to replicate Australia’s 1984 Grand Slam-winning efforts as they face England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as Italy in an expanded schedule to close 2013.
The Wallabies have achieved a sweep of the home nations just once, while the All Blacks have managed it four times - in 1978, 2005, 2008 and 2010.
The Australians will kick off against old foes England on 2 November, followed by Italy in Turin seven days later on 9 November, Ireland in Dublin on 16 November, Scotland in Edinburgh in 23 November and finally Wales in Cardiff on 30 November.
The Spring Tour will follow the conclusion of The Rugby Championship and the final Bledisloe Cup match in Dunedin on 19 October.
The Qantas Wallabies’ final two domestic Tests in 2013 are against the Springboks in Brisbane on Saturday 7th September (tickets available at www.ticketek.com.au) and Argentina in Perth on Saturday, 14th September (tickets available at www.ticketmaster.com.au).
