As part of the Spring Tour, there are half a dozen international rugby union matches this weekend featuring some of the code’s elite players representing world rugby’s best teams.
Australia’s Spring Tour of Europe has reached a second week and they are scheduled to play Scotland at legendary Edinburgh stadium Murrayfield.
In the crucial second match last weekend the might of the Poms was too much for the Aussies on a dodgy AAMI Park surface. The 23-7 victory wrapped up England’s first ever series win in Australia and they will be especially keen to secure a clean sweep.
The Wallabies are coming off a shock first up loss to the Old Enemy. England’s defeat of Australia was their first win at Suncorp Stadium and set a solid foundation for what was expected to be a difficult tour for Eddie Jones’s troops.
Test Match rugby finally returns for 2016 with a host of matches to be played across the southern hemisphere this weekend. In South Africa, the Springboks will meet Ireland in Cape Town at Newlands while the 2015 Rugby World Cup champion All Blacks play Wales at New Zealand’s Eden Park in Auckland.
