Fijiana to play WXV 3 in Dubai, World Rugby confirms

The Fijiana XVs will be playing at Dubai’s iconic The Sevens Stadium which World Rugby has confirmed as the host of WXV 3 in its debut year.

The competition will be played across the weekends of 14, 21 and 28 October.

Alongside Fiji, five teams will be heading to Dubai for WXV 3 in Ireland, Kazakhstan and Kenya, with two spots remaining to be filled by the winner of the two-leg play-off between Colombia and Brazil in Medellin, Colombia on 5 and 9 July and the loser of the play-off between Italy and Spain on 22 July in Piacenza, Italy.

The tournament will be supported by UAE Rugby Federation and hosted at The Sevens Stadium.

Earlier this week, World Rugby announced that WXV 1 will be played in three cities across New Zealand in Wellington (Sky Stadium), Dunedin (Forsyth Barr Stadium) and Auckland (Go Media Stadium, Mt Smart) from 20 October to 4 November.

So far, England, France and Wales have secured their places in WXV 1 by virtue of their performances in the TikTok Women’s Six Nations 2023. They will be joined by the top three teams from this year’s World Rugby Pacific Four Series, which features Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.

Japan, Samoa, Scotland and South Africa occupy four of the six spots in WXV 2 with the remaining two to be determined by the lowest placed team in the Pacific Four Series and the winner of the Italy versus Spain play-off. An announcement regarding the venue for WXV 2 in Cape Town will be made shortly.
