Afternoon all. Are we in for a treat this afternoon or what? (that's a rhetorical question, by the way...)
All four home nations are in action as the autumn internationals get under way, with England starting the Martin Johnson era with a tester against a useful-looking Pacific Islanders side made up of the best players from Fiji, Tonga and Samoa. A fierce physical challenge is guaranteed, but England should be confident of pulling away later on.
Over in Cardiff, Six Nations winners Wales get another crack against world champions South Africa after losing both Tests against the Springboks on their summer tour. A few people, including our own Jonathan Davies, fancy Wales for this one.
Those two games kick off at 1430, but the fun doesn't stop there with Scotland up against - let's be honest here - New Zealand's second-string side at 1715. Can Frank Hadden's men take advantage of the absence of the likes of Richie McCaw and Dan Carter from the starting XV?
And last but not least Ireland start their own, slightly less hyped, new era under former Munster coach Declan Kidney against Canada. The bookies think it should be a comfortable stroll for Brian O'Driscoll and co, but then we all thought that ahead of the Namibia game at the World Cup, didn't we?
Let us know your thoughts, predictions, where you are watching the game etc - you know the routine by text on 81111 or right here.
And one incidental thought for you. A nameless colleague here at BBC HQ questioned whether the now regular series of Tests at this time of year should be called autumn internationals or not.
So, what do you reckon? Is November autumn or not?
