November is a big month with regard to rugby. It all starts on the first of the month when New Zealand takes on Samoa in the Four Nations Rugby League match. On the following day you can sit back and enjoy all the action in the same event as Australia takes on England.
The following week it is the turn of rugby union to get some of the limelight. No fewer than four matches take place on the 8th, all of which are part of the rugby union calendar of events. These see the following nations square up against each other:
- Scotland vs Argentina
- Ireland vs South Africa
- England vs New Zealand
- Wales vs Australia
Rugby league fans aren’t left out on that same day though, as the Four Nations event has New Zealand facing off against England to see who wins. The following day it is the turn of Australia and Samoa to see who will get the highest score. When we said it was a busy month for rugby fans, we weren’t kidding!
England, Scotland and Wales are all back in action again in rugby union on the 15th. They take on South Africa, New Zealand and Fiji respectively. Then on the 22nd we get to see England against Samoa, as well as Ireland against Australia, Scotland against Tonga and finally Wales vs New Zealand in rugby union.
Finally towards the end of the month on the 29th, when many of us will be thinking about Christmas once again, rugby union sees two more matches that should be worth a closer look. These will be between England and Australia, and Wales and South Africa.
Clearly this is a big month whichever type of rugby you like to watch. However if you don’t mind which of the two sports you will enjoy watching, you have plenty of matches to choose from. Which ones appeal to you most and which ones are going to tempt you to place a bet or two to see if you can pick the winners? Whichever ones you decide on, enjoy the game and let’s hope for a winner!
