It means if the Wallabies can win in Auckland or Sydney in August, they will play the October 27 decider on neutral turf in a match almost certain to sell out the 72,000-capacity stadium in Japan’s second-largest city.
The Japan Rugby Football Union and New Zealand Rugby confirmed in a joint statement this evening that the match will be played at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama on Saturday October 27.
Both the 2018 Bledisloe Cup Tokyo match and the All Blacks Test against Japan the following weekend, Saturday November 3, at Ajinomoto Stadium in Tokyo, will be played at key Rugby World Cup 2019 venues.
