Wales have announced they will play in the autumn internationals against the Southern Hemisphere trio of Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.

Their autumn series campaign begins with the arrival of the All Blacks on Saturday, November 5, following which Argentina will play next week at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Wales finished fifth in six countries, winning only their second match against Scotland.

Phillips said: “In international rugby you always want to test yourself against the best teams and we will play one by one with the best teams in the world next year.
