Fixture List

Just look at all the brilliant international rugby that's coming up this weekend!

No wonder Richie’s so damn excited.

OH, YOU THOUGHT that the sight of trophies and talk of end-of-season meant rugby was over for the summer? Pfft! It’s just getting started.

On Monday, the Junior World Championship got under way in New Zealand. And that will give us a healthy dose of Friday rugby until the big boys get taped upat the beginning of the  international summer tours.

Here’s what you can expect to see (either on TV or by some internet voodoo magic) this weekend.
