How to watch or stream Scotland in The Rugby World Cup 2019

Scotland has been threatening big things in Europe for the past five years but often come up short in big games. Coach Gregor Townsend has installed a exciting, attacking mentality that will make them a truly exciting team to watch at this World Cup, but results will be key.

This new style leaves them open to the counter against pressing teams, meaning they often concede as many points as they score. They have world-class players in the shape of Stuart Hogg and Finn Russell, who can rip defences apart with raw pace and pin-point passing accuracy. But you feel that they will have to cut out errors and build some consistent performances to kick-on in Japan, which will make for some compelling viewing.

The Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview – Can Scotland prove they belong at the top?

Scotland have put in some great performances in recent Six Nations championships, showing European sides they belong at the top. However, consistency is a problem and they often lose against lesser nations between tournaments.

They also depend on a key unit of players, and once injuries set in, which they inevitably will during the Rugby World Cup, things will become difficult. If they can reduce casualties the Scots will see the quarter-finals as a good world cup.

The Celtic men share Pool A with Ireland, Samoa, Russia and hosts Japan. The game against the Cherry Blossoms will be decisive in deciding who progresses to the knock-out phase alongside Ireland. Japan will have a whole nation behind them on home turf, so it promises to be a huge match-up.

Review of Scotland’s Group Matches

Scotland vs Ireland: Scotland kick-off their World Cup against European neighbours Ireland, who joins them as favourites to progress from Pool A. This should be a feisty encounter with plenty of fast-flowing, attacking rugby.

Scotland vs Samoa: These are the games that Scotland needs to win in order to prove their credentials. They are used to being the underdogs themselves and struggle to lay down a marker against second-tier opposition such as the team from Samoa. This will be a very interesting game.

Scotland vs Russia: A good win will be expected against the Russian Rugby side taking part in only their second World Cup. Expect plenty of points for the Scottish on their way to a comfortable win.

Scotland vs Japan: This game could easily be a decider to see who progresses to the knock-out stages alongside Ireland. The Japanese Rugby team need to show lots of mental strength to come through with a win.
