Australian capital city Canberra has been named as the hosts for next year's Anzac league test.

The clash between the Kiwis and Kangaroos will take place on April 19 at Canberra Stadium, and will be the first Anzac test the city has ever hosted.

Appropriately Canberra is also the site of the Australian War Memorial, where the Anzac history is a focal point.

Canberra has previously staged games during rugby league's World Cup in 2008 - a tournament ultimately won by the Kiwis.

The annual one-off test continues the countdown towards the 2013 World Cup in the UK, Ireland and France that October.

The Kiwis lost this year's Anzac Test at Eden Park 20-12, and have only one victory (1998) in the thirteen times the two rivals have met for the annual game.

New Zealand has hosted only two Anzac tests.
