The Wallabies will play all three of their June home tests in the afternoon for the first time in more than 20 years.

The 2017 inbound Test schedule has been released, with 3pm kickoffs scheduled for the matches against Fiji (AAMI Park, June 10), Scotland (Allianz Stadium, June 17) and Italy, (Suncorp Stadium, June 24).

"Fans have told us that they would like more opportunities to watch Test Rugby in the afternoon, with clearly the biggest reason being that an afternoon timeslot makes it much easier to take the family along," ARU CEO Bill Pulver said.
