Aviva Premiership: Exeter vs Bath
Watch: Full Game | Condensed
Seeing Semesa Rokoduguni’s name on the England squad list for the Autumn Internationals was pleasing but no surprise – the colossal Fijian-born winger been in devastating form for Bath all season. He didn’t get many touches in the first half against Chiefs on a crisp Autumn afternoon at Sandy Park, with the home side going to the break holding a 3-0 lead. The game opened up a bit late in the second half though and Rokoduguni was able to link up with England teammate George Ford for a glimpse of what could we could see in the white jersey in the coming month.

Mitre 10 Cup: Otago vs North Harbour
Watch: Full Game | Condensed
The Mitre 10 Cup Championship final lived up to its promise but not in the way many were expecting. After ten weeks of free-wheeling high-scoring rugby this was something of a 180 – a classic tight, tough game of finals footy. Otago got first points on the board when Fa’asiu Fuatai crossed for a well-executed try after just two minutes but from there it was all arm-wrestle, one that didn’t let up until the final whistle.

Pro 12: Ulster vs Munster
Watch: Full Game | Condensed
If Munster looked a little low on energy in the first half at Kingspan it was easy to understand why – their Champions Cup win over Glasgow the previous weekend was played with a rare intensity. Heading into halftime Ulster were up 14-0 through tries to Charles Piutau and Rob Lyttle, but a try on 40 minutes let the visitors back into the game, setting up a tense second half.

Four Nations: England vs New Zealand
Watch: Full Game | Condensed
New Zealand’s record in rugby league internationals on English soil is patchy to say the least – you only need to go back to last year’s 2-1 series loss to see that this was going to be a tricky assignment first-up. Both sides looked a little short of match practice in the early exchanges – the Kiwis took the early lead through Raiders winger Jordan Rapana but England quickly struck back as the game grew into an engrossing battle.
