The Autumn Internationals as they are known in the Northern Hemisphere, or End-of-year Internationals as they are known in the Southern Hemisphere are a series of international rugby union test matches that are played in October and November.
The matches are usually hosted by Northern Hemisphere nations against touring Southern Hemisphere teams, with the reverse occurring during the Summer Internationals. Typically Autumn Internationals do not take place during a Rugby World Cup year.
