Rugby Winter Internationals 2014

We are a big fan of the Autumn Internationals. Perhaps it’s a quick peek at what’s to come in the following year’s events, like the 2015 6 nations & next year’s Rugby World Cup. Teams often test out new tactics and new players, and it tends to be full of dynamic, free flowing games. Below we’ve summarise the results and fixtures as they happen.

The 2015 Rugby World Cup kicks off on September 15th 2015 with England vs Fiji at Twickenham. The final will also take place at Twickenham on October 31st 2015. So mark that in your diary !

Last week saw Ireland bring in a convincing win against South Africa. The 29 – 15 win will give the Irish a bit of confidence compared with the loss last year to Australia (32-15). Actually the Irish rugby team has only lost one game this year, to England. And with new players like Rhys Ruddock putting in a try, Ireland’s rugby team is certainly looking strong for next year. One interesting story about Ruddock was that he was thinking of quitting Leinster not too long ago.

Other interesting results last week was England vs. New Zealand, England were narrowly defeated by 21 – 24. Scotland vs. New Zealand, was a close battle for the half, and at halft time they were leading. But in the end New Zealand showed their full potential and pulled away.
