We are 15 days away from the start of the World Cup in Japan.

The excitement will get bigger this weekend as we will be able to see 6 test matches on SuperSport as nations get themselves ready for rugby showpiece.

To top it all off we will end the weekend with an exciting Currie Cup Final in Bloemfontein when the Toyota Free State Cheetahs host the Xerox Golden Lions on Saturday.

You can catch all our previews and discussions right here at Ruggaworld, with live minute to minute score updates

The Weekend Starts with the Springboks who are already in Japan playing the host in their last warmup test before the World Cup Starts on the 20th of this month.

Coach Erasmus has picked his strongest side for this test and he has said that victory is the only gaol for the team come Friday.

The game will be live on SuperSport 1 at 12:05 (Do not miss this one)

 

Scotland had a good victory over Georgia last week away from home and they will want to end their preparations for the World Cup off with a win at home against them this weekend.

Scotland should be able to dominate proceedings but coaches trying different things it may be closer than we think.

This game will be on SuperSport 8 at 20:20 on Friday evening

 

England and Italy also ends their preparations with their last warm-up test before the World Cup

England is one of the favourites to win the World Cup this year and put the marker down with a runaway win against Ireland a few weeks ago.

The English should not have much trouble putting the Italians away in this one.

The All Blacks are still the outright favourites to take their third consecutive World Cups.

They have been the inform team for the past few years and although teams like Ireland, Wales and England had caught up with the men in black, they still manage to win those important one’s

They will take on Tonga early on Saturday morning which should be a very one sided affair.

The Aussies will take on Samoa this weekend in what will be a very hard battle as it always will be against the Island sides.

We have not seen much of Samoa but this should give us a great indication were they are at the moment.

Australia have build up nicely so far this year and it looks that their players have some more confidence than last year.

The heavy defeat against the All Blacks should still be in their heads so no way they will loose this one.

This game will be on SuperSport 1 at 11:20 

Ireland knocked Wales off the number one spot when they beat them in a close game last weekend in Cardiff.

Ireland will be at home this weekend with Wales that will want to return the favour in Dublin.

This is going to be a massive test with both sides wanting to carry momentum into the World Cup.

This game will be on SuperSport 8 at 14:50

In Between all of that we also have the Currie Final and the SA Rugby U21 Final.

The Blue Bulls have put some massive scores up against the other sides in this competition and has been the favourites since round 1.

Other teams including Province have caught up with the men from Pretoria which makes this one of those Finals that should bring plenty of excitement and tries.

This game will be on SuperSport 1 at 13:30

Currie Cup Finals are always exciting and with this year’s tournament being as good as it has been we expect fireworks in Bloemfontein.

The Golden Lions have been playing some good rugby with some exciting youngsters but they will come up against a Free State side that have earned their place in the final.

Both teams have been playing their best rugby in the second halves of matches so it would be interesting to see how this go.

The Currie Cup Final will be live on SuperSport 1 at 16:55
