International Rugby Tests. The program for France, Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales

From July 2 and until July 16, the nations of the northern hemisphere are on the move in the southern hemisphere to face South Africa, Japan, New Zealand or Australia (or Argentinian). Here is the program below, as well as the groups that have been selected by coaches who sometimes have trouble composing, at the end of the season, which is particularly difficult for these professionals. A program gleaned from the Team’s website.

If the tour of France in Japan like that of Scotland in Argentina seems to be the least interesting, we will closely follow the clashes New Zealand Ireland, Wales-South Africa and Australia-England to follow, in three rounds, that Should taper strong. Some matches will take place this weekend (preparation for the tour) with in particular a match between Chile and Scotland, another between the Maori All Blacks and Ireland, or even between English and French Barbarians.

It should be noted that on the TV broadcast side, for the moment the matches against Japan have not found takers in France on the broadcaster side.
