One of the busiest weekends of the test rugby year. It’s also the busiest time of the year for us Australian and New Zealand school teachers. Near the end of the year and report writing time!
It is not going to be possible to cover every test match so I will concentrate on four of the more important games in my opinion.
The four test matches are, France v New Zealand; Canada v Georgia; Romania v Tonga and Germany v Poland. There are many more interesting games I could cover but I’ll try and do justice to these four.
