New Zealand will face the Kangaroos in a trans-Tasman doubleheader in Wollongong, the NRL has announced.

The Jillaroos and the Kiwi Ferns will also meet at WIN Stadium, with the matches schedules for October 25.

"Rugby league has a home in the Illawarra, so we're delighted to bring the pinnacle of rugby league back to Wollongong for the first time in five years," NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said.  

"We recorded one of the best-ever attendances for WIN Stadium the last time test-match rugby league was played in Wollongong.

"So I've got no doubt the local support will be strong and compliment those travelling fans who can't wait to be at the Stadium come October 25."
