someone just pointed out to me that its been a decade since Ireland last tour NZ, which was surprising to me

which made me think, whats the deal with 2-3 game tours in July and then when the SH team head north at the end of the year we play one game each when we can going for the grand slam

anyone know the why that way around, should we swap them around on year?

I'd guess it's to do with the 6N capitals likely being closer than different cities in SA and Australia. So hopping from 6N capital to capital is simple whereas doing the same in the SH in July would be more of a hassle.
