The record attendance levels meant there was an average gate of more than 73,000 for each match - easily the highest of all Six Nations sides this autumn. And both Australia and New Zealand will be back in 2006 to complete an enthralling line-up of fixtures that also includes a first game ever against the Pacific Islands and Canada.
The Wallabies, who are also in Wales' Pool in the 2007 Rugby World Cup, will open next year's series on Saturday, 4 November. Next up will be the combined strength of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga as the Pacific Islands make their first trip to Europe on the weekend of 10/11/12 November. Canada will be in Cardiff on Saturday, 18 November and the world's top ranked side, New Zealand, will be back on Saturday, 25 November.
