The 2010 mid-year rugby union tests (also known as the Summer Internationals in the Northern Hemisphere) refers to the rugby union Internationals that were played from late May to late June, mostly in the Southern Hemisphere.

For Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, the Tests constituted preparation for the 2010 Tri Nations.

The first nation to announce its fixtures for this series was Australia, which unveiled its schedule on 21 September 2009.[1]

South Africa announced its fixtures on 8 October 2009, but delayed announcing the venues since it hosted the FIFA World Cup simultaneously. FIFA regulations call for World Cup venues to be handed over to FIFA 15 days before the World Cup starts. FIFA also prohibits any other major sporting events from being held in host cities from 7 days before the opening of the World Cup until 7 days after its end.[2] An agreement was reached between the South African Rugby Union and the local World Cup organising committee to allow the match against France to be held at SARU's intended venue of Newlands in Cape Town, a non-World Cup venue in a World Cup city.[3]
