Prior to the tournament getting underway, all nations will be playing a few warm-up games in order to be best prepared for the showpiece event. It is worth remembering that the Northern Hemisphere sides have not played together since the completion of the Six Nations in March, so naturally they have a couple more fixtures.

Perhaps the blockbuster fixture in the warm-up games will be that of New Zealand vs South Africa at Twickenham on 25 August.
