AUTUMN TESTS ROUND-UP
Commentary highlights and reaction from Scotland's famous win against Australia, their first for 27 years, as well as reaction to the weekend's matches from Rory Lamont, Martin Johnson and Daniel Carter. Plus we speak with Italy's coach and the new Puma skipper:
2009 has without doubt been a tough year for Italy - played 10, lost 10 - but all of those test matches have been played against the world's top rugby nations and, far from shying away from the situation, national coach Nick Mallett is revelling his new Italian rugby life. We speak with the former Springbok coach.
PUMAS: JUAN MARTIN FERNANDEZ LOBBE
The Pumas have been living up to their reputation on tour - uncompromising on the pitch, friendly and accommodating off it - and we spoke with the current captain.
EAGLES LAND AT RUGBY WORLD CUP
We were in Fort Lauderdale for the second leg of the Rugby World Cup qualifier between the USA and Uruguay, with reaction from Eagles coach Eddie O'Sullivan and captain Todd Clever, as well as Uruguay coach Felipe Puig and captain Rodrigo Capo.
WOMEN'S RUGBY WORLD CUP 2010
We hear from England's women's camp after they won a famous 10-3 victory against the world champions New Zealand, their first against them for eight years. And we also speak with New Zealand, England and Wales at the official launch of next year's Women's Rugby World Cup.
Three years ago we met Victor Vito as captain of New Zealand's Under 19 team but since then his career has followed a meteoric rise, via the IRB Sevens World Series, Super 14 and Pacific Nations Cup. We hear from the 22-year old now gunning to win a place in the All Blacks squad by 2011.
