    All the tours which aren't stated how many matches they will be, would likely be 2 or 3 matches, if it is just one country arriving or touring.

    Pretty sure England would be awarding caps for that as well.

    To be honest, I think it's silly that Argentina are just playing Tier 1 for all these tours, under the current arrangement with European clubs where European based players can't play in both June and the 4 Nations, it just ridiculously depletes them, that arrangement has to change, and if it doesn't change then their depleted side should be playing Tier 2.

    Great work in find and producing this!

    You can add in Wales playing in Samoa and Fiji in June 2013. It is confirmed.

    Yes 100% official with test caps awarded.

    I can only afford one, out of my driving range, rugby match a year so if those future North American tours really happen you can count me happily in for those Ireland and Scotland visits.

    Just so everybody knows all the top nations except for Scotland and Italy are doing the 3 test series thing. I guess they were deemed not good enough, which is fair enough i suppose

    What's disappointing is that Japan weren't more included in this. They've got a World Cup to host in 2019 and need to brought up to scratch fast. 2 tours during Lions seasons just ain't going to cut it. Realistically they should have a top tier country touring there every year from 2015. You'd imagine Ireland, Italy, Wales and Scotland would be the best candidates.

    Well, Heyneke Meyer should be a happy camper with those fixtures ahead of the Rugby Championships in future... Good teams to play against when you want to test out the youngsters...

    I heard that from 2015 onwards there will be more tours to Japan, precisely because of the world cup.
