Autumn Internationals is a yearly event and it is also one of the most popular tournament in the history of rugby. If you have not attended Autumn Internationals before then here’s your chance to be among the audience. The Autumn rugby fixtures are now firmly established in the calendar for all the Home Nations, playing against the best of the Southern Hemisphere. Wales V South Africa match is going to be held in Millennium Stadium at Saturday November 13, 2010.
Outside centre Brian O’Driscoll, the current captain and Ireland’s current all-time leader in both tries and appearances, is considered one of the best rugby players in the world and led Ireland to only their second Grand Slam in March 2009. He was also captain of the Lions on their 2005 tour of New Zealand, although his on-field captaincy was cut short by a controversial injury in the Lions’ first Test. O’Driscoll was succeeded as Lions captain for their 2009 tour of South Africa by his current teammate, lock Paul O’Connell. Keith Wood, O’Driscoll’s predecessor as Ireland captain before retiring in 2003, was the inaugural IRB International Player of the Year in 2001. Ireland’s highest ever position in the IRB World Rankings is third which they reached in 2003 and 2006. They currently lie in fifth position as of 18 February 2010 after their defeat by France in the Six Nations.
The number one ranked team in the IRB World Rankings they were named the International Rugby Board (IRB) Team of the Year in 2005, 2006 and 2008. Fifteen former All Blacks have been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame, one into the IRB Hall of Fame. The team first competed in 1884 against Cumberland County, New South Wales, and played their first Test match in 1903, a victory against Australia. This was followed by a tour of the northern hemisphere in 1905. The team’s early uniforms consisted of a black jersey with a silver fern and white knickerbockers. By their 1905 tour New Zealand were wearing all black, except for the silver fern, and their All Black name dates from this time. New Zealand traditionally perform a haka (M?ori challenge) before each match. Traditionally, the haka performed is Te Rauparaha’s Ka Mate, though since 2005, Kapa o Pango, a modified version of the 1924 All Blacks haka, Kia Whaka-ngawari, has occasionally been performed.
