GOOD news for rugby fans of Fiji, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland as they will be able to watch the 2017 Autumn Rugby international matches live on Sky Pacific.

Digicel Fiji chief executive officer Mike Greig said the company was happy to bring the matches live to their viewers.

"We are delighted to announce that Sky Pacific will show seven international Test matches, including the Flying Fijians vs Ireland Test this month," he said.

"This will certainly make November an action-packed rugby month for all our Sky Pacific subscribers with world-class rugby action every weekend for the next four weeks.

"Sky Pacific viewers will be able to watch our Flying Fijians on tour in their toughest match away this autumn season.

"The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians will go head to head against the current world third-ranked Ireland in Dublin at 6.30am on November 19. The Flying Fijians have been on a roll after four successive victories during the June Test window earlier this year."

The matches will start on November 12.

"Eddie Jones' England will hope to at least consolidate its current ranking of second in the world as they host Australia in an expected thriller and also play our neighbours Samoa.

"Wales welcome Rugby Championship sides, Australia and South Africa with Scotland facing Samoa in the opening match at Murrayfield in Edinburgh this Sunday."
