Put the Guinness in the fridge, wheel in your favourite armchair and close the blinds – there’s an incredible amount of international rugby on offer this weekend.
It’s New Zealand v England first up at 8.35 and an opportunity to see two sides in transition. Both teams look very different from those that competed in the Rugby World Cup, and the performances of each will be scrutinised closely by fans and media alike.
Australia host Ireland straight afterwards at 11.05. The Irish were competitive last week against the All Blacks and they stand a chance of turning the Wallabies over on their soil.
After an hour’s break, South Africa and Wales reconvene for the second test at 2pm. The Six Nations Grand Slam winners will need to be put in a much more convincing performance to avoid another thumping from the World Champions.
Finally, in the evening, there are three to choose from – England Saxons v Ireland A in the Churchill Cup at 7pm, Argentina v Scotland at 8.10 and then Canada v Argentina (another XV) at 9pm.
