With the summer fixtures decimated following the COVID-19 pandemic, we were all dreading a November with no Test matches.
But international rugby has been resurrected for the end of 2020!
Step forward the Autumn Nations Cup.
All Six Nations sides, along with Fiji and Georgia (following the withdrawal of Japan) will take part in a 2 pool competition in November and December 2020.
Each team will play the other three teams in their group, before the winners of each group play each other, second plays second etc,to determine an overall winner of the competition.

Amazon have won the TV rights to show the matches live, but Channel 4 will broadcast England v Ireland, Ireland v Wales and Ireland v Georgia on free-to-air TV.
There's still no word on whether fans will be allowed into any of the games, and if so how, full the stadia will be, but we are just glad to see the return of some top class international rugby!
