With less than a year to go before the World Cup gets underway, it’s time for the northern hemisphere countries to lock horns with their southern counterparts.
World champions New Zealand, Australia and South Africa have arrived in Europe looking to continue their customary ascendancy over Wales, Ireland, France and England with Stuart Lancaster’s men taking on the All Blacks at Twickenham on Saturday.
Elsewhere France entertain Fiji with Scott Spedding, Teddy Thomas and Alexandre Dumoulin all eager to make their international debuts.
Spedding, who obtained French citizenship earlier this year,
will be replacing Fullback Brice Dulin.
This test will be the first of three held in November, with the team facing Australia on November 15 and Argentina on November 22, both at the Stade de France.
