Summer Rugby Internationals

The Home Nations Summer Tour begins this Saturday, with every match of every tour being shown live on Sky Sports.

This year, England will be travelling down under to Australia for the first time since 2016. They’ll be hoping to put a disappointing Six Nations campaign behind them as they face the Wallabies in three highly anticipated Tests over the next three weekends.

At the same time, Ireland will be travelling to New Zealand. They’ll be hoping to make history with their first ever victory over the All Blacks on New Zealand soil. Alongside the three Tests they’ll be playing against the All Blacks, they’ll also be playing two mid-week matches against the Maori All Blacks.

Wales will be travelling to South Africa for the first time since 2014 to face the Springboks, who are currently the reigning world champions.

Meanwhile, Scotland will be touring Argentina for the first time since 2010. In their last tour of Argentina, they beat the Pumas 2-0 and they’ll be hoping for a repeat this time around.
