Sky confirm live TV coverage for second test

The Sky Sports Magazine (sent free to all subscribers) confirms that the second test between England and New Zealand will be shown - live - on Sky Sports 2 (and HD) on the 21st November, from 4.30pm.

In fact the magazine has a big, and very prominent, page-and-a-bit feature on the game on page 5 (the men don't get a look in until page 32!). The article is based around an interview with England captain Catherine Spencer, and includes several "facts" about the game... one of which seems a shade dodgy (are there really "500 more female than male clubs in Scotland and Wales"?).

If anyone wants to go to the game, entry will be free for the second test at Twickenham (well, after the men's international has been played - you won't get into see that game free as well!). The first test at Esher RFC on the 14th won't be on TV and there will be a small entry fee for that one (about £5 I think). The tour also includes a game between England A and New Zealand, also at Esher, in between the two tests.

This will be the first time New Zealand have ever played in England - indeed the first time the Black Ferns have visited the UK since the first World Cup back in 1991 - so its really not to be missed. If you get any chance to get to see the world's top two teams battling it out next month - grab it!
