Armchair rugby supporters will get the chance to see the All Blacks, Australia and France in action on ESPN in November.
While the likes of England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland will be in action next month, the other two countries in the Six Nations - Italy and France - will also be taking centre stage. France kick-off their autumn Test programme when they entertain Australia at the Stade de France on November 10. And supporters of Les Bleus will also see them action when they face the Pumas the weekend after and then Samoa on November 23.
Jacques Brunel's Italy will also be in action and they start their programme against Tonga in Brescia on November 10. They then face the mammoth task of the All Blacks on the 17th and finish off against Australia on the 24th.
