Wallabies Spring Tour Tests LIVE among 18 Tests on FOX SPORTS in November
The top 13 rugby nations in the world will all feature in a blockbuster month of international rugby from November 2, headlined by Australia’s five-match tour including a Grand Slam against the four ‘home nations’.
The Wallabies begin their Grand Slam tilt this Sunday morning (1.15am AEDT on FOX SPORTS 2HD) when they clash with the old enemy England on the hallowed turf of Twickenham.
Ewen McKenzie’s men will be just the ninth Australian outfit to embark on a Grand Slam tour, 29 years after our only Grand Slam triumph in 1984 which catapulted the likes of Campese, Ella, Farr-Jones and Lynagh to international fame.
A core group of the current squad of players will make their second attempt at the prestigious feat after missing out on the Grand Slam in 2009 when the Aussies drew with Ireland and were then beaten 9-8 by Scotland in between victories over England and Wales.
Australia will play Italy in its second match on November 10 in Turin, which won’t count towards the Grand Slam, before moving on to Dublin to meet Ireland (November 17). They will then battle Scotland in Edinburgh (November 24) and end their campaign against Wales in Cardiff (December 1 AEDT).
On Sunday, November 10, FOX SPORTS will deliver 101⁄2 hours of back-to-back Test rugby kicking off with the Wallabies’ clash with the Azzurri from 12.45am AEDT on FOX SPORTS 3HD & FOX SPORTS 3.
Besides all five Wallabies Tests, the LIVE coverage throughout November features a host of blockbuster international fixtures between the world’s top nations, including France’s home matches against the All Blacks (November 10, 7am AEDT) and South Africa (November 24, 7am AEDT).
Australia’s most recognised rugby commentary team, led by Greg Clark, will call the action for each Wallabies Test while host Nick McArdle will be joined by a rotation of FOX SPORTS experts including Nathan Sharpe, Tim Horan, Phil Kearns, Rod Kafer, Greg Martin, and Brendan Cannon to preview and review each clash.
FOX SPORTS’ LIVE coverage of International Rugby is available in HIGH DEFINITION for Foxtel sports subscribers and is also available on Foxtel Play and via the Foxtel Go app.
