How to Watch or Stream England in Rugby World Cup 2019


England has reached the final of a Rugby World Cup for the first time in 12 years. Standing in their way of a second Webb Ellis trophy, however, is a South Africa side which has proved itself capable of beating anyone throughout the course of the tournament.

England will head in as favourites – after all, they knocked off the All Blacks in the semi-finals – but the 2019 Rugby World Cup final shapes up as a thrilling clash. England has demonstrated just how much talent they have all over the pitch over the past few weeks and if they play at their best will be extremely tough to beat, but South Africa won’t be laying down.

The Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview – Can England win a second World Cup?

England currently sits fourth in the rankings behind Wales, New Zealand and Ireland – but it’s all very close. They have found their form again this year after a torrid, injury-hit 2018 campaign that saw them lose six games on the bounce. They redeemed themselves in the European autumn with wins over Australia, South Africa and Japan, but a narrow one-point loss to the All Blacks meant a clean sweep was not to be.

There have been lots of reasons to be cheerful if you’re an England fan in the World Cup, though. A strong performance in the Six Nations saw them beat a quality Ireland side in Dublin, whilst a 44-8 mauling of the French personified their acute attacking prowess. They’ve also showed some sparkling form in the Rugby World Cup 2019 warm-ups and seem to be peaking at just the right time.

England Match Previews

England vs Tonga: England kick-off their campaign against an unfancied Tonga rugby team at the Sapporo Dome on September 22. They will be looking for a big performance to get their campaign off to a positive start.

England vs USA: Next up they play the USA, where the game of rugby recently went professional. England should be too strong in all areas over 80 mins, but the Eagles do have some real attacking flair.   

England vs Argentina: This could potentially be England’s toughest group game. The Pumas will be desperate to make it into the quarter finals, and a win against England would near enough guarantee it.      

England vs France: Referred to as “le crunch”, England and France have a big history in rugby head-to-heads. Expect lots of big hits, plenty of counter-attacking brilliance and lots of emotion. This will be one of the standout Pool games this World Cup.

England’s previous World Cup results

For a team that invented the sport of rugby, England should be known for more success than they are in the game’s flagship competition. Their historic moment came in 2003 when they beat Australia in Sydney to claim their first and only Webb Ellis trophy, thanks to a last-minute drop goal from legendary fly-half Jonny Wilkinson. 

However, losses in the final to Australia in 1991 and South Africa in 2007 mean that England have often fallen short when facing Southern Hemisphere teams – highlighted by their 2015 group stage loss to the Wallabies.
