Summer Rugby Internationals 2021

This page displays a list of fixtures to be played by Tier 1 rugby nations in June, July and August.

The Home Nations – England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales – had been planning to go on summer tours, but the coronavirus pandemic has driven a change of plan. Instead, a series of home fixtures have been arranged with limited numbers of spectators expected to attend.

The British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa is due to go ahead. The three Tests against South Africa, plus the warm-up against Japan are also listed on this page.
