New Zealand v Australia in Wellington (Bledisloe Cup, Rugby Championship)
South Africa v Argentina in Mendoza (International Rugby Championship)
United States v Canada in Toronto (WCQ Americas, NACRA R2, 2nd leg)
Singapore v Chinese-Taipei in Singapore (Asia Tri-Nations)

Venezuela v Colombia in Asuncion (CONSUR B)
Paraguay v Peru in Asuncion (CONSUR B)

Australia face an uphill battle to square the Bledisloe Cup series with New Zealand in Wellington. Another loss and the Cup stays with New Zealand.

Argentina will be licking lips at the prospect of entertaining the Springbox at home. Last year they managed a draw at home and will be looking to turn around their fortunes from last weekend.

Like Australia, the USA faces a struggle to pass Canada in their away clash. Down by an aggregate of 17 points they need to win by 18 to push the Canadians to the repechage stage and take the Americas 1 spot at the 2015 Rugby World Cup Finals.

On Sunday the CONSUR B competition gets underway in Paraguay.
