The All Blacks will play four Test matches on their end of year tour to Europe, the New Zealand Rugby Union confirmed today.
The All Blacks are scheduled to play Scotland, Italy, Wales and England, while current New Zealand tourists Ireland are not among the destinations, preventing the opportunity for the All Blacks to attempt a grand slam.
The four Test matches will be played on consecutive weekends beginning against Scotland in Edinburgh on November 11 and culminating in a showdown with England at Twickenham on December 1.
All Blacks 2012 European Tour schedule:
November 11 v Scotland at Murryfield, Edinburgh
November 17 v Italy at Stadio Olympico, Rome
November 24 v Wales, Millenium Stadium, Cardiff
December 1 v England at Twickenham, London
