The 1979 Romania rugby union tour of Wales was a series of five matches played by the Romania national rugby union team in Wales in September and October 1979. The Romanian team won four of their tour matches and lost the fifth, against a full-strength Welsh national side, by only a single point. Wales were the reigning Five Nations champions at the time although they designated their team Wales XV for the game and did not award full international caps.
