The Wallabies are out to finish their 2021 season on a positive note when they take on Six Nations champions Wales at their Cardiff fortress on Sunday morning (AEDT).

Veteran prop James Slipper will lead Australia following captain Michael Hooper’s foot injury in the loss to England. After five straight wins, the Wallabies have lost two straight in the northern hemisphere and will be desperate to gain another major scalp.

Wales lost to the All Blacks before beating Fiji and are also playing without their regular captain, the great lock Alun Wyn Jones.

ENGLAND V SOUTH AFRICA
SUNDAY 21 NOVEMBER

You won’t want to miss this blockbuster rematch of the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final.

A brutal contest awaits as England attempt to exact revenge although they will be without key players in captain Owen Farrell and hooker Jamie George, who are both out injured.

Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber said:

“We will enter the match equally motivated, especially with the opportunity to retain our status as the top team in the world for a third successive season and winning all three matches in the tour for the first time in eight years being a real prospect.”

FRANCE V NEW ZEALAND
SUNDAY 21 NOVEMBER
LIVE ON STAN SPORT FROM 6:00AM AEDT

This shapes as a fascinating contest between the teams that will contest the opening match of the 2023 RWC in France.

The All Blacks are smarting after being upset by Ireland in Dublin, and the heat is on coach Ian Foster to deliver. Incredibly, New Zealand have won 14 straight Tests against France and haven’t been beaten in Paris since 1973.

But it shapes as a tight contest given NZ’s wobbles and the rise of a powerful Les Bleus squad.

Keep an eye out for superstar France halfback Antonie Dupont, a nominee for the World Rugby Player of the Year award.

MATCHDAY 5

FEATURE MATCH: VILLARREAL V MANCHESTER UNITED

WEDNESDAY 24 NOVEMBER
LIVE ONLY ON STAN SPORT FROM 4:30AM AEDT

Stan Sport’s studio coverage will bring a special double-header to football fans on Wednesday morning, starting with Manchester United’s trip to Villarreal from 4:30am AEDT.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under enormous pressure after recent heavy losses to rivals Manchester City and Liverpool and will travel to Spain knowing his team could be on the brink of early elimination should they lose this match.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in every single Champions League game this season and will be looking to add to his record tally of 139 goals in the world’s premier club football competition.

Villarreal, who come from a town with a population of 50,000 people, less than the capacity of Manchester United’s home ground, will take confidence in the fact they beat United on penalties in last season’s UEFA Europa League Fiinal. Should they win the match, they will leapfrog United into first place in Group F.

FEATURE MATCH: BARCELONA V BENFICA
WEDNESDAY 24 NOVEMBER
LIVE ONLY ON STAN SPORT FROM 6:50AM AEDT

Following the first match, the Stan Sport team will head a few hours north to the Camp Nou in Catalonia for Barcelona v Benfica.

Barca will welcome a club legend to the bench with four-time Champions League winner Xavi taking over as coach from the recently sacked Ronald Koeman.

Xavi won’t be the only familiar face in this vital clash. Dani Alves, the most successful player of all-time with 43 trophies, has returned to Barca and could feature against Benfica.

Meanwhile, The Eagles, who are the biggest team in Portugal, will know that a victory in Barcelona will put them within touching distance of the knockout stage for the first time since 2017.

FEATURE MATCH: MANCHESTER CITY V PSG
THURSDAY 24 NOVEMBER
LIVE ONLY ON STAN SPORT FROM 6:35AM AEDT

City are in ominous form with 15 goals scored in 4 UCL games this season. Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking for revenge after their 2-0 loss in Paris earlier in the season.

Guardiola will have to come up with a way to stop his former protégé Lionel Messi, who is now at PSG. Together in a four-year spell they won 14 trophies in four years, including two Champions League titles. Since being apart, they faced each other five times, with Messi scoring seven goals in those matches.

This match will likely determine who finishes top of group A and therefore gets an easier draw in the knockout stages. However, should the French giants lose, they would go into the final group match possibly needing a result to avoid early elimination.

Waikato are out to dethrone defending NPC Premiership champions Tasman when they host the southerners in Saturday’s Grand Final in Hamilton.

The Mooloo men beat perennial Kiwi provincial powerhouse Canterbury in the semi-finals while Tasman upset minor premiers Hawke’s Bay last weekend.

Stopping Tasman winger Leicester Fainga’anuku will be a key for Waikato with the 22-year-old scoring a competition high eight tries this season.

In the second tier championship decider earlier in the day, Taranaki will host Otago in New Plymouth.

Taranaki playmaker Stephen Perofeta will pull the strings for the home side and is the competition’s leading point-scorer.
