Premiership champions Leicester Tigers will play a friendly against Australia at Welford Road in November.

The Wallabies are embarking on a four-Test European tour and are due to visit the Tigers on Tuesday, 9 November.

Australia face New Zealand in Hong Kong on 30 October and play further Tests against Wales, England, Italy and France in November.

Tigers beat world champions South Africa 22-17 in a thrilling match at Welford Road last year.

Managing director David Clayton told the club website: "The Springboks fixture last season was a very memorable occasion and we're looking forward to another historic encounter with the Australians.

"It is a very special event when an international squad plays on a club ground and we are delighted to be able to welcome Australia this year."
