Weekend Watch Guide: Summer Tests Series Heats Up

Miss Pass: It All Starts Now

This weekend, there are two huge fixtures on tap LIVE and On Demand here on FloRugby!

Wales vs England - 9:15 am (ET)

France vs Scotland - 3:00 pm (ET)

Wales vs England

Kicking off the day at 9:15 am (ET) will be Wales against England. Last weekend, the Welsh had an opportunity to claim the world #1 ranking with a win at Twickenham. However, Eddie Jones and England had other plans, using a first-half blitz to quash any Welsh hopes for that top spot in the rankings. 

With just a six-day turnaround between games, Warren Gatland and his Wales squad will be eyeing revenge at home in Cardiff. Gatland has named a formidable side once again, and his boys will want nothing more than to put on a great show for the sellout crowd at the Principality Stadium this Saturday. 

France vs Scotland

Following the Wales, England clash will be the opening Summer Test Series matches for France and Scotland at 3:00 pm (ET). Both teams can be seen as dark horses for this autumn's World Cup, but they'll need to be on their best form. 

The road to finding their form begins on Saturday in Nice. On the Scots' last visit to France during this year's Six Nations, they were ambushed by a classy French performance. Everything that day seemed to come off for France, and if they bring that quality to Japan, watch out. 

Scotland has one of the most potent attacks in world rugby, but the Scots' up and down performances have been frustrating. They will want to tighten the screws and cut out the lackadaisical outings before they ship off for the World Cup. If they can do that, beware of the northmen. It all starts this Saturday in France. 

In case you missed it

If you didn't get a chance to tune in to the action at the Club 7s Championships in Kansas City this past weekend, you can still catch all the action right here on FloRugby. The quality of play was great, and it bodes well for American Rugby moving forward. 

Watch each and every game from 7s nationals right here:
