The BBC will show Ireland, Scotland and Wales' autumn internationals on live TV this year following a series of new deals announced by BBC Sport.

The contracts will include rights for TV, radio and online, HD and iPlayer.

BBC Sport recently signed a deal with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) to provide highlights of every England international up to 2013 inclusive.

BBC Sport will cover Ireland and Wales games in 2010, 2012 and 2013 inclusive and Scotland games in 2010.

Philip Bernie, head of TV Sport at the BBC, said: "We're delighted to have renewed our partnership with the WRU, IRFU and SRU to cover their annual autumn international fixtures live and with the RFU to show highlights of their matches.


"The autumn internationals continue to grow in intensity and importance as the home nations test themselves against the best of the southern hemisphere and take stock ahead of the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.

"We value the ongoing relationships we have with the home unions and look forward to continuing to bring top-class rugby to our audiences."
