Emma Watson certainly made head turns at the recent Elle Style Awards. Yet, she managed to have the same effect at a crowd in Twickenham where she was spotted with beau, Matthew Janney, to watch a rugby match. Looks like the "Harry Potter" beauty is learning a thing or two about the latest sport her boyfriend is very much interested in.

During the weekend, "Noah" actress was seen with none other than her new beau, Matthew Janney at Twickenham Stadium. The couple was seen watching a match between England and Ireland for the Six Nations Tournament. Given Matthew is the star of Oxford University's rugby team, it would be natural for him to watch the said sports event. So, why was Emma tagging along? Could she perhaps want to learn the sport as well?

Dressed down for the date, Emma sported skinny jeans paired with a khaki jacket. Her beau on the other hand sported a gruff looking beard, padded navy jacket, jeans and brown boots.

This counts as the couples' second date, with their first during their Caribbean trip together in January. It certainly took no time for Watson to find a replacement beau after her relationship with Will Adamowizc ended late last year.

As for Janney's adoptive parents, Coralie and James Day, they are nothing but thrilled to know their son is dating UK's hottest and most talented star.

"We are thrilled to bits that he is seeing Emma Watson. We are looking forward to meeting her soon," said the couple in an interview with the Evening Standard (via Express), adding, "Hats off to her for finding such a wonderful young man. There is nothing bad anyone could say about Matt. He is absolutely lovely."

Surely, this won't be the last time Emma will be seen out and about with her Oxford hunk of a boyfriend. As for other Emma related news, her film "Noah" is set to hit theatres by March. She's also set to star in a thriller film directed by Alejandro Amenabar. The adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" on the other hand by Guillermo Del Toro has still been put on hold.
