AUTUMN INTERNATIONALS november 14th 2018
Happy Wednesday and hopefully you are all gearing up for what should be another fantastic weekend of rugby.
After the weekend gone by, which included important wins for Italy(over a 2nd Tier team in Georgia, vying for their 6 NAtions Spot), Wales over Australia for the first time in a decade and a last minute win for South Africa over France, to continue their resurgence with under a year to go to World Cup 2019 in Japan, we now look forward to the 2 Top Teams in the World clashing in Dublin in what should be a titanic battle.
Tickets are like gold dust, so why not get down here to The Pig n Whistle on 36th early and grab a seat, a few beers and lunch and enjoy what should be a great atmosphere!!
England start the days coverage off at 10am v Japan, and after the closest of defeats to New Zealand, will want to get back on track again. Scotland take on South Africa at 12.20pm and we should get that entire game in before switching over to the Big One, Ireland v All Blacks. We will then show France v Argentina on Tape Delay after that game.
So, the lineup is:
10am England v Japan
12.20pm Scotland v South Africa
2pm Ireland v New Zealand
4pm France v Argentina (Tape Delay)
Also NO COVER CHARGE for England game this weekend, how kind of Premium Sports!!
Look forward to seeing those of you not lucky enough to be travelling to any of the games and make sure you share this with ALL your rugby mates!!!
The Heineken Cup is back... almost
The EPCR have announced Dutch beer company Heineken as title partner of the Champions Cup from next season.
The tournament - won by Leinster for a fourth time this season - will now be known as the Heineken Champions Cup.
The premier rugby tournament in Europe was known as the Heineken Cup from 1995 until 2014, when the ERC was replaced by the EPCR as French and English clubs flexed their muscles and sought the restructuring of a tournament won by Irish provinces five times in seven seasons, between 2005 and 2012.
