The Investec Rugby Championship is one of the pre-eminent international competitions in world rugby. It is contested annually between Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Prior to the 2012 tournament, when Argentina entered the Rugby Championship, it was known as the Tri Nations. The inaugural Tri-Nations tournament was in 1996, and was won by the All Blacks. The expanded Rugby Championship comprises a round robin format in which all the teams play each other home and away. New Zealand hosts each of the three other Rugby Championship countries and in 2017 will host Australia in Dunedin, Argentina in New Plymouth and South Africa at QBE Stadium on Auckland's North Shore.
The annual Bledisloe Cup is a mouth-watering side addition to the annual Rugby Championship. The home and away clashes between the All Blacks and the Wallabies, plus an additional game hosted by Australia in 2017, make up the three-game contest. The All Blacks have held the Bledisloe Cup for over a decade, and will once again defend it with the passion and vigour which comes with such a prestigious and well-respected Trans-Tasman trophy.
