It looks like November is a bumper month for Rugby Union fans with just about everyone playing everyone else over consecutive weekends starting on Saturday 30th October.

Amazon Prime is needed to see the games live apart from Ireland that is on C4 & RTE. Wales highlights are on SC4.

The article says that anyone who can find a way to watch Wales versus New Zealand will be in for a treat!

I've abseiled off a few cliffs in my time but never fallen off one 😩

I watched the game & to be fair the AB's looked very sharp and Wales just did'nt could'nt handle it.enjoyed the game though it's good to get some international games again.

Despite being a Welsh rugby supporter I thought the AB's scored some beautiful tries. There's a big debate in Wales as to whether we set ourselves up for a fall being so early in the season and without our English based players (although I still think we would have lost).

The silver lining is that my 1953 Wales v NZ match programme has probably increased in value again - it was the last time we beat them 😳

Haven't seen one game.  Being only a casual watcher of Rugby Union I was not prepared to get Amazon Prime for the privilege, so contented myself with highlights on YouTube.

On a general point I just don't agree with the number of subs that can be used these days,  and have thought so for a while now For example the Springboks can play two sets of world class front row forwards, one 1st half and one 2nd half. They only need to be fit enough for 40 mins rather than 80.

It's the same for everyone so having strenth in depth is vital now. England also changed the front row later on in the 2nd half when the SA front row were fatigued which gave us parity for the last 15 minutes and got us back on the front foot to score a try & win the game at the death.👍

I have watched most of the games in full & the nice thing on Amazon Prime is they offer various ways to catch up on games you have missed like brief highlights or extended highlights and also the whole game in full. I have had AP for a while & the cost is worth it for how much I get delivered alone so the rugby is a bonus.

Blimey. So the second set of SA front row forwards were knackered after only 25 mins or so?

Mind you, having said that, when I briefly played RU as a crappy full back I was goosed after about 5 mins. I don't think the 10 pints the night before helped.

VERY pleased for Marcus, great pressure kick.

I was at my club watching after a 1st XV win having been "lubricating" since 12, the room was well behind the lads.

SA dominated the scrums for the first 25 minutes of the 2nd half & to do that takes it out of you so our fresh front row did the same in the last 15 minutes.

I played rugby 7s in the Army & it certainly took it out of you thats for sure.

I see a great future for Marcus Smith he has a superb rugby brain. Eddie Stewart was just awesome under the high ball and made yards every time he got the ball.
