Hamilton to host All Black test

03:28, Nov 02 2012

Hamilton will host one All  Black test next season - against the Pumas on September 7.

However, it misses out on any of France's three tests in New Zealand or the two home Bledisloe Cup tests.

The New Zealand Rugby Union released the dates for the seven tests to be played at home next year.
It's the first time New Zealand have played seven tests at home since 2008.

The French will play the All Blacks in Auckland on June 8, Christchurch a week later and New Plymouth on June 22.

Wellington gets a taste of Bledisloe Cup action with a Rugby Championship fixture there on August 24.

New Zealand host two of the three Bledisloe Cup tests next year, with the other being played in Dunedin on October 19.

Waikato Stadium  will host the Pumas  in the Rugby Championship on September 7 and Eden Park gets a second test with the Springboks playing there on September 14.
