Stars of the future
We’re now two months into the new season, with the Aviva Premiership, PRO14 and Top 15 Competitions in full flight – we’ve also seen the start of the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup.
After a busy summer, lots of players have put their hands up and the Autumn Internationals provide a great opportunity to newer, fringe players, to stake their claim for their first (or more) international honours.
Ireland will line up against South Africa, Fiji and Argentina, whilst France will face stern tests against New Zealand (twice!), South Africa and Japan.
We’ve picked four players who could feature this November, so be sure to keep an eye on their progress! Images: Leinster Rugby, Pro14rugby, Sport24, Eurosport
