England XV v CONSUR XV in Montevideo

Welcome June. This is probably the biggest window of international test rugby on the calendar for 2013. It also coincides with one of my busiest times of the year as a school teacher. Therefor my coverage will not be full but hopefully I can concentrate on the keys matches.

This weekend sees the much awaited British and Irish Lions tour down under kick off with a game against the Barbarians in Hong Kong.

Another tour to begin is England in South America. Before the two tests against Argentina England, without it’s Lions of course, will play a CONSUR Select side in Montevideo.

Fiji and Japan clash in Lautoka as the Pacific Nations Cup continues whilst Poland and Sweden play one of the last games in Europe for the European Nations Cup and World Cup qualifying. The result doesn't matter as the playoff position have been decided.

Finally the last round matches for the 2103 NACRA Caribbean Championship will be played. The result of the Caymans v Bermuda game is of no significance as USA South has already snappled the North place. However the Guyana-Trinidad Tobago game will decide the South winner.
