As well as the big Bledisloe Cup game tomorrow between New Zealand and Australia, there's a few other internationals, as Scotland host Ireland, and England play Wales. Here's the latest O2 Inside Line, focussing on the latter.
As you will have noticed, most of the prematch talk has been about England's all black away jersey, which they'll be wearing for the first time tomorrow. For the past few week's opinions have varied, as they did when we posted a sneak peak on here a few days back.
In this week's O2 Inside Line - a feature that was popular during the Six Nations - we get to see Austin Healey and Abi Griffiths in the new tops as they discuss tomorrow's game. It's a first outing for a few players, with Manu Tuilagi in particular falling under the spotlight as he partners up with Riki Flutey in the midfield. Matt Stevens also returns after his lengthy time out.
We're taken behind the scenes with James Haskell as he tries out a few new looks make-up wise, and Austin, Ben Youngs, and Danny Care have a spin-pass competition, with former international Healey faring well.
It's an enjoyable episode for England fans and neutrals alike, and we'll see more over the next few weeks in the lead up to the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. For now though, what is your prediction for the match, and how important it is in relation to the upcoming World Cup?
