The Tri-Nations between Argentina, Australia and New Zealand kicks off this week with the third instalment of the Bledisloe Cup, while the Guinness Six Nations is back with a bang as the competition returns.

Ben O'Keefe will be the man in the middle of Bledisloe Cup III, which doubles as the opening match of the 2020 Tri Nations.

There is plenty to play for in the final round of the Guinness Six Nations, as the winner of the competition could be one of Ireland, England, France or Scotland.

Super Rugby Unlocked continues with three mouth-watering matches in Johannesburg, Mpumalanga and Pretoria, respectively. The SA Rugby Under-21 Championship reaches its climax as the Xerox Lions and Vodacom Blue Bulls contest the Final.
