Looking for the perfect gift for a rugby player this summer? The 2022 Summer Internationals are about to kick off in July. It’s a great time to reward the rugby player in your life with a gift to keep them company as they enjoy an end of season break and watch our nation’s internationals on TV. With England, Scotland and Wales heading to the southern hemisphere for a series of International rugby tests (known as the Mid-Year Internationals or July Internationals in the Southern Hemisphere) It’s going to be huge, with the giants of the North taking on the heavyweights of the South in their own backyard.
Rugby Heads South
So who is playing who? The Wallabies welcome England to Australia for what will be one of the most hotly anticipated matchups this July. Both sides will be looking to build key combinations with the Rugby World Cup looming in 2023.
Wales head to South Africa to take on the Springboks. This could be a tough series for Wales who struggled in the 2022 Six Nations Championship. Can they rise to the occasion and upset the World Champion Springboks in South Africa? Their first test kicks off on 2 July. Scotland Rugby head to Argentina in 2022 for their Summer Tour as strong favourites but at home the Pumas have been sharpening their claws. Ireland head to New Zealand for a run against the All Blacks. Lately a few Ireland vs All Blacks clashes have thrown up a few surprises but Irelend face a very tough challenge down under.
All of the matches are being broadcast on Sky. If you are lucky enough to be a Welsh or South African fan you will be able to see the matches in daylight. For the rest of us it’s early starts or late nights to see heroes take on the southern hemisphere. You could bring some light into these early hours matches and treat yourself or a friend to a Rugby Ball Light, an official licensed product of hosts the Wallabiles and Springboks and tourist England Scotland and Wales.
