Rugby takes centre stage this weekend, with a big Rugby World Cup clash for the Wallabies and the NRL Grand Final headlining the weekend in sport. Take a look at all the details on those events and more below.
Rugby World Cup
Australia v Uruguay
After a tough loss at the hands of an impressive Wales team in the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the Wallabies get their first chance to bounce back this weekend when they face Uruguay. A win here is expected, but if the Aussies slip up they be faced with the prospect of elimination, so they will come out all guns blazing.
