There are well over 20 Test matches this weekend as the November window stays open.

Sara Cox of England has two notable involvements in men’s rugby. She is an assistant referee in a World Cup qualifier meant to sort out repechage teams, a first for her, and she is the referee in the Bristol Bears with the UK Armed Forces.

The crunch match of the weekend is in Dublin when Ireland play the All Blacks with Wayne Barnes in charge.

South Africa’s first Test against a single country was against Scotland in 1906. The Springboks lost at Hampden Park but this time are in Edinburgh in a match the Scots believe they can win, after beating England and France earlier this year. Romain Poite is refereeing that one.

There are two World Cup qualifiers down in Marseilles with Jaco Peyper and Luke Pearce to referee them.
