Cardiff - Wales will play world champions New Zealand as part of a four-match schedule of home matches for the Six Nations winners later this year.

The Welsh, who completed the Grand Slam in the Six Nations last weekend, will have another chance to earn a first victory over the All Blacks since 1953 when they meet at Millennium Stadium on November 24.

Wales opens their schedule with matches against Argentina and Samoa, before ending it with a game against Australia on December 1.

Roger Lewis, chief executive of the Welsh Rugby Union, says "(Wales coach) Warren Gatland has always said we will only get better by playing the best, and this autumn we have certainly met his challenge and lived up to his expectations."
