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.
Scotland have a strong rivalry with the English national team. They both annually compete for the Calcutta Cup. Each year, this fixture is played out as part of the Six Nations. England are the current holders after defeating Scotland 26–12 at Twickenham in the 2009 Six Nations and retaining the trophy with a 15–15 draw at Scotland's home ground of Murrayfield in the 2010 edition. Whilst Scotland have a draw and two wins against England in the sides' last three meetings at Murrayfield, they have recorded few victories over their "Auld Enemy" in recent years, beating them just four times since 1990. Furthermore, their last away victory over England was in 1983.


Scotland achieved 100 points for the first time in defeating a young and inexperienced Japan side 100-8 on November 13, 2004. The previous record had been 89-0 against Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) in the first round of Rugby World Cup 1995. The game versus Japan was played at the home of St. Johnstone Football Club, McDiarmid Park, Perth. It was the first time that Scotland had ever played "North of the Forth" (i.e. the Firth of Forth) in the Caledonian region. In the same game Chris Paterson moved ahead of Andy Irvine in the list of Scotland's all-time points scorers.

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.
