The matches included

England v Japan - Stade de Nice - Sunday 17 September 2023

This contest really is one for the rugby connoisseur. There are so many plot lines and so many twists to this occasion it could fill an Agatha Christie novel.

England’s head coach Eddie Jones will come up against the team he used to coach. It will be their first ever meeting at a Rugby World Cup and is likely to be one of the most watchable matches of the pool phase.

There is no doubt England will be favourites but this could be a mini classic of its time.


When it comes to destinations for long weekends and rugby-related trips during Rugby World Cup, it is hard to think that any city (with perhaps the exception of Paris) will be more in demand than this sparkling jewel of the Cote d'Azur.

The seafront is the main focus, of course. The Promenade des Anglais runs alongside the Mediterranean for four miles but the city caters to all sorts. The narrow streets behind Plage des Ponchettes – Rue du Moulin, Rue du Pontin, Rue de l’Abbaye – are filled with bars which deal more in beers than bottles of something vintage. This is also the “old town”, where the Baroque Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate holds pride of position on Place Rossetti, and the Marché Aux Fleurs Cours Saleya (market) sells local produce. From here, it’s a short walk up the Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), where the remnants of the city’s medieval fortress look down on the beaches.
