It's the third week of the Test window this week, the last week though there will still be some more afterwards.

It's the third week of the Test window this week, the last week though there will still be some more afterwards.

The big match is probably in Paris, France vs South Africa, though there will be much interest in what happens at Murrayfield and down Lansdowne Road.

It is devoutly to be wished that there is not again the rash of red and yellow that we had last weekend.
