Summer Internationals (Mid-year Internationals)

A rugby ball

The Summer Internationals as they are known in the Northern Hemisphere, or Mid-year Internationals as they are known in the Southern Hemisphere are a series of international rugby union test matches that are played in June or July.

The matches are usually hosted by Southern Hemisphere nations against touring Northern Hemisphere teams, with the reverse occurring during the Autumn Internationals. Typically Summer Internationals do not take place during a Rugby World Cup year and the Home Nations of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales do not tour Australia, New Zealand and South Africa during a British and Irish Lions touring year.
