Thanks to the magic of Jan Taljaard, we have the time for ball in play during eight Tests at the start of November's rugby fiesta.

The match with the longest period of ball in play is Wales vs Argentina followed by France vs Australia. The match with the least ball-in-play time is Ireland vs South Africa.

We have also added the finals of the Currie Cup and Super Rugby and a sample from the Rugby Championship.

NB The sequence is: first half + second half = whole match.
