The first recorded Test was between Australia and New Zealand in the Masters Division when a three Test series was played in New Zealand in 1976. Thus started a Trans Tasman series that is played annually with a super series including Youth, Opens and Aged divisions now also part of the agenda.
In 1987 Australia undertook a tour of Canada and America where in Ontario, Australia played a three Test series in the Mens, Women, Mixed and Masters divisions against Canada. Prior to the World Cup in 1988 Australia played a one Test series in the four divisions against Canada and a two Test series, again in the four divisions, against New Zealand.
In 1995 Australia and Great Britain took Mixed teams to Japan for a Tri Series of Tests. Then in 1998 at the South Pacific Island Nations Tournament, New Zealand, Samoa and Niue played a Test Series in the three open divisions. In 2003 New Zealand and Wales played a Mixed Senior Test Series in Cardiff and in 2004 played a one Tests series in the three opens divisions. The Asian nations have also jumped on board with a tri-series between China, Hong Kong and the Philippines in 2018.
