Cape Town - This weekend will see no fewer than NINE Northern Hemisphere v Southern Hemisphere rugby matches.

Starting on Friday, Canada and Namibia will do battle at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay, Wales.

Saturday sees Japan tackle the Maori All Blacks in the second of their matches, before Italy and Samoa collide at the Stadio Cino e Lillo Del Duca and Georgia welcome a Jake White-inspired Tonga side to the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium in Tbilisi.

England v New Zealand is up next in perhaps the Test of the weekend at Twickenham, while Wales host Australia at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

France "should" be too strong for Fiji in Marseille, before the pick of the weekend's Test - from a SA point of view - sees the Springboks open their end of year tour against Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Scotland finish off an exhausting weekend of rugby against a much-improved Argentina side at Murrayfield.

Nine matches. 720 minutes. Phew!

North or South? Who will own bragging rights at the final whistle?
