How to Watch or Stream Wales in Rugby World Cup 2019


Wales reached the semi-finals for the third time in Rugby World Cup history following a thrilling one-point win over France, but they fell heartbreakingly short of an inaugural finals berth in a gruelling clash against South Africa.

Facing the All Blacks on the final weekend on the tournament would typically mean you’ve advanced through to the final, but unfortunately for Wales it will be the third-placed playoff in which they’ll face the team which has won the last two World Cups. They haven’t finished as high as third-place since the inaugural World Cup in 1987, which may give them a little extra motivation against a New Zealand team which will still be reeling from an unexpected semi-final loss.

Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview – Can Wales win a first World Cup?

Wales, like New Zealand, is a country that considers Rugby Union their national sport. And with that comes expectations. Wales have frequently failed on the world’s biggest stage, due mostly to a lack of depth when key players are injured. 

The key to them winning the Rugby World Cup 2019 is down to belief. They have won plenty of big games in the last 12 months against England, Australia, South Africa and Ireland, so they are rightly considered serious contenders. And in George North, Dan Biggar and Liam Williams they have the x-factor players needed to push through the knockout stages. 

Wales’ performances will obviously generate plenty of interest and Kayo Sports will be broadcasting comprehensive coverage of every Rugby World Cup 2019™ game, with every match LIVE with no ad-breaks during play.*

Wales Match Previews

Wales vs Georgia: Wales play their Pool D opener against Georgia on September 23. Georgia is one of the most promising sides in second-tier rugby and will be aiming to show the world that they can mix it with the big boys.

Wales vs Australia: Next up its Australia in a crunch game that should decide the winner of the Pool on September 29. Both teams are evenly matched and will be keen to win the group for an easier match in the quarter finals, so it promises to be a real cracker. 

Wales vs Fiji: Arguably Wales second toughest game in the group is against Fiji, a team with amazing talent that suffer from not playing too often together. If Fiji can gel quickly in this tournament, they should create a real test for the Welsh.   

Wales vs Uruguay: Wales will be looking to get plenty of scores on the board against Uruguay, a side who struggle historically against bigger nations. Expect the fringe players to get a run out and lots of points for Wales.

Wales’ previous World Cup results

Wales don’t have the best history at World Cups. They reached the semi-final in the first edition back in 1987, but they couldn’t reproduce that feat until 2011 – when they were controversially beaten by France.

Three exits at the group stages over the years go a long way in showing how far their current team have come, and they have definitely had the squads in the past to do better. 

Wales has traditionally struggled against Southern Hemisphere sides, with Australia, New Zealand and South Africa eliminating them over the years.
