2007 Rugby World Cup warm-up matches

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Throughout August 2007, various teams prepared for the Rugby World Cup in France with a short series of test matches, primarily in the Northern Hemisphere and involving the RBS Six Nations sides. In addition, South Africa played one test in Scotland following the 2007 Tri Nations and Argentina one test in their home country and one in Wales. The tests were effectively a replacement for the usual Autumn international series in November which does not take place in World Cup years.

Note: this article does not include international results not involving at least one side who had qualified for the 2007 World Cup.
