We’re set for another weekend of thrilling internationals and here are our predictions for all the matches taking place throughout Europe.
The weekend’s marquee game has to be the highly anticpated encounter between England and the world champions, New Zealand, at Twickenham.
Wales’ Test with Australia should also be a good match-up between two evenly matched teams and the home side will be determined to get the better of the Wallabies, who have won the last 13 matches in this fixture.
Elsewhere, in Paris, France host South Africa, who are on a six-Test winning run against Les Bleus.
In other action, Ireland take on Argentina in what should be an exciting encounter in Dublin while Scotland host Fiji at Murrayfield and Italy do battle with Georgia in Florence.
Let’s get into our predictions…
Italy v Georgia
Prediction: Georgia cannot completely be written off, having beaten Tonga earlier this year, but Italy will be hungry to put a victory on the board and should have enough quality to do just that. Italy to win by 10 points.
Scotland v Fiji
Prediction: We expect the hosts to bounce back from last week’s poor performance at the Principality Stadium. Scotland to win by 12.
England v New Zealand
Prediction: The All Blacks will be too strong and, despite England’s resilient display last weekend, Eddie Jones’ men will struggle to get close. New Zealand by 15.
Wales v Australia
Prediction: Even a wounded Wallabies outfit will always pose a tough test for the Welsh, but this time, Warren Gatland’s side should have enough firepower to see them off. Wales to win by five points.
Ireland v Argentina
Prediction: The home side will be too strong for the Pumas. Ireland by 15.
France v South Africa
Prediction: The Springboks will be highly motivated to return to winning ways and will take this one, albeit by a narrow margin. South Africa to win by four points.
