INTERNATIONAL RUGBY returns THIS WEEKEND as the best of the Southern Hemisphere travels to the England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, as well as France and Italy.
Wales are looking to build on their Six Nations title but some of the Dragons stars will still be smarting from the Lions’ narrow series defeat in South Africa.
England meanwhile will be hoping to put their Six Nations horror show behind them while Ireland and Scotland will aim to build on what has been a promising year so far.
And France will be hoping to finally fulfil their potential after a hugely exciting Six Nations ended in failure.
Either way there are some thrilling fixtures in store this autumn, but you’ll need to know where to tune in.
