After all the tension and drama of the final pool rounds in Europe there is a week's breathing space before the Six Nations breaks out. But there is club stuff, weather in Europe permitting and there are two Tests.

After all the tension and drama of the final pool rounds in Europe there is a week's breathing space before the Six Nations breaks out. But there is club stuff, weather in Europe permitting and there are two Tests.

The Turks & Caicos Islands will be playing their first Test ever. Curaçao did that recently and won, beating St Vincent and The Grenadines.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the West Indies. The total population is about 45,000, of whom approximately 22,500 live on Providenciales in the Caicos Islands.

Saracens play Cardiff Blues, a match which will be played on artificial turf at the new, 10 000-seater Allianz Park Stadium, Saracens' new home in Barnet, North London.  Playing on an artificial surface is a first for professional rugby in England.

In South Africa the Varsity Cup starts on Monday, which is why we have slightly extended the appointments' week to include Monday.
