CARDIFF -- Wales will take on all three of rugby's southern hemisphere giants as well as Fiji in next year's autumn internationals.

New Zealand, South Africa and Australia will visit the Millennium Stadium next November. The Welsh Rugby Union hasn't confirmed the dates of the matches but says a test against the Springboks will be the fourth and final game of the series.

WRU chief executive Roger Lewis says on Wednesday "we have consistently said if you want to be the best, you have to play the best and the 2014 autumn schedule reconfirms that commitment."

The Welsh haven't beaten any of the SANZAR teams since 2008.

They lost to the Springboks and Wallabies last month.
