Cape Town - Current Six Nations champions Ireland will play a three-Test series against the Springboks in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth in June 2016, the South African Rugby Union (SARU) announced on Friday.

SARU also confirmed that back-to-back Rugby World Cup champions, New Zealand, would venture away from Johannesburg for the first time since 2011 when they meet the Springboks at Kings Park in Durban, on October 8 in the Rugby Championship.

Rugby World Cup finalists Australia return to Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, while their semi-final opponents, Argentina, will venture into new territory for the Pumas, in Nelspruit, when they take on the Boks in the opening round of the Rugby Championship on August 20.
