The drive for 2015’s Rugby World Cup goes into high gear this Saturday when eleven international matches will take place around the globe. Nineteen of the twenty RWC finalists will compete. (Only Uruguay has no venue.)
The match of the day will witness New Zealand against England at Twickenham. How important was it for the All Blacks to warmup against the Eagles in Chicago? Is this a preview of the RWC 2015 final?
Three other high ranking slugfests will see Wales vs, Australia at Millennium Stadium, Ireland is at home against visiting South Africa, and Scotland will play Argentina, a replay of an earlier match from this summer’s Scottish tour of North and South America.
France welcome Fiji, and Italy host Samoa. The Japanese play a Maori XV in Japan, while Georgia play Tonga.
Canada will vie with Namibia away in the 6,000 seat Parc Eirias located in Colwyn Bay, Wales.
The Eagles will travel to Bucharest to play Romania in the National Stadium.
