This weekend brings a host of sporting action to enjoy, including a Springbok clash that’s sure to be a cracker, a Premier League match-up that all eyes will be on, and another unmissable international rugby Test that will undoubtedly be packed full of entertainment.
Ireland vs Springboks
Ireland will host the Springboks at Landsdowne Road this weekend, and the Irish, having just lost out in defeating the All Blacks last year, will know that they have the ability to topple the big teams, especially with their Six Nations championship win this year.
The Springboks will know they have a tough Test ahead of them, but the Springboks have been in strong form this season, beating the Wallabies and All Blacks at home, but the true strength of their resolve will come winning away from home in the Northern Hemisphere. The match is sure to be a cracker and the team line-ups are packed full of stars who could make or break a game.
Liverpool vs Chelsea
Liverpool vs Chelsea this Saturday is without a doubt the Premier League game of the weekend. It will offer both sides a huge opportunity to really make a statement.
Liverpool are already 12 points behind the league leaders, but this is a real chance to kick off the season by breaking the Blues’ unbeaten record.
Chelsea on the other hand, are simply flying with 8 wins out of 10. To win away at Anfield would surely give the London club confidence in the belief that it really is their year.
England vs All Blacks
England and the All Blacks have sparked a massive rivalry in recent years, with England’s historic win in 2012 still fresh in the memories of the Kiwis. They have exacted their revenge, but Steve Hansen’s men will be eager to stomp their authority at Twickenham, just a short few months before the 2015 Rugby World Cup.The two teams have played each other 39 times with the All Blacks winning 31 times. England have won seven Tests and there has been one draw. England is definitely experimenting with their combos, where the All Blacks are perfecting their. Aaron Cruden comes back into the No. 10 jersey for the All Blacks, with Sonny Bill Williams making a big return following his impressive comeback start against the USA last week.
