2018 November Internationals



  • All the details of the upcoming matches can be found here: .

    The match schedule with kick-off times, line-ups, broadcast details for New Zealand as well as links to the touring (and hosting) squads.

    I've published this info on the front page, to make the information more accessible and scrolling back to the first post of the thread unnecessary.



  • So we can’t put squads in this thread then?



  • @derm-mccrum put what you like!! it's a free-for-all y'all!



  • @derm-mccrum Of course, you can. They will be in the blog post, which makes them easier to find, but they can still be posted here if you want to discuss them.



  • I don't know whether anyone noticed, but the All Blacks test against Ireland kicks off at exactly the same time as the Māori All Blacks game against Chile on Sunday, 18 November. Did some idiot miscalculate the time difference at NZR? Geez.



  • It's a shit show here in the UK with BBC, Sky, C4 and maybe others showing matches and a number of big games clashing.



  • @mikethesnow Looking at the schedule, all England games clash with either Wales, Scotland or Ireland tests, but the latter three manage to avoid clashes with each other in most weekends (not all).



  • Anyone know if any of the AB games are on Foxtel in Aus? Normally we get them all except the England game.

    no. In the past it's been beIn, but don't even think it was that last year.



  • When the ABs aren’t playing and you are watching at home it can be quite good being able to flick between concurrent matches and watch whatever is looking most interesting.
    The problem is that the overlapping ruins watching at the pub as it just causes problems.
    Was at a pub for the SA/AB game and despite a good crowd that had been handing money over the bar all afternoon some fuckwits came in with 20 to go and insisted that because they had booked tables they wanted a wendyball game put on the TV in that area.



  • @mariner4life 'no' you don't know, or 'no' they are not showing them? I suspect you meant the latter...

    no i don't know, and no i can't find anything about it. That's not unusual however, as the broadcast deals always get done so late. No one in this country gives a fuck about rugby so it's of no surprise

    This weekend's Bledisloe 3 game is on Fox Sports 503. I don't think there's much point in checking for the following weekends; these tv guides change so often.

    With 6 games going on all weekends but one it's hard not to have clashes.



  • Italy vs Georgia will be an intriguing fixture
