Autumn Internationals return in 2012

Autumn Internationals return in 2012

Autumn Internationals tickets are now available to purchase and should provide some top-class rugby later this year.

The end-of-year rugby union tests feature the best teams in the world, including the home nations and the powerful forces of South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

6 Nations Grand Slam winners Wales will kick off the internationals against Argentina on November 10th, before going on to face Samoa, New Zealand and Australia.

Earlier in the year, Roger Lewis, chief executive of the Welsh Rugby Union group, said: "Warren Gatland [Welsh head coach] has always said we will only get better by playing the best. This autumn we have certainly met his challenge and lived up to his expectations."

Other key battles in the Autumn Internationals 2012 include England versus Australia on November 17th, while Ireland will face difficult opposition in South Africa at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on November 10th.

One to watch will be the Scottish inviting South Africa in to the grand setting of Murrayfield on November 17th.
