New Zealand Rugby World Cup Live Streaming and 2019 TV Fixtures

new zealand

After winning in 2011 and 2015, the 2019 Rugby World Cup presents an opportunity for the All Blacks to become the first team in history to win three tournaments in a row, and you won’t have to miss a minute of the action when you watch on TV or stream all the matches live to an eligible device.

Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview: New Zealand

The All Blacks have been the best team in the world for a long time and at this event it’s no different, with the Kiwis national side heading in as favourites to win the tournament. They have won the past two Rugby World Cup’s, in 2011 and 2015, and though they have undergone significant changes in recent years with the departures of the likes of Richie McCaw and Dan Carter they have done well to consistently bring in fresh talent and remain the dominant side in world rugby.

In the lead up to the 2019 World Cup of Rugby, however, they did show some weaknesses which their opponents will be looking to exploit. Though they didn’t play their best team, their failure to win the recent Rugby Championship was hugely disappointing for their fandom, and a crucial error in a big-game situation by star Beauden Barrett had many questioning his ability to perform under pressure. Despite the question marks, they still boast an abundance of both talent and experience. If they play near their best, it will be extremely difficult to beat New Zealand in the World Cup.

All Blacks Match Previews

The All Blacks’ most difficult test of the Group Stage will come in their opening game, when they face South Africa on Saturday, the 21st of September. Kicking off at prime time on the East Coast of Australia, the match could easily decide who finishes on top of Pool B, with both sides capable of going through the rest of the Group Stage undefeated. The last time these two sides met was at the Rugby Championship where they played out a 16-16 draw, and though New Zealand will head in favourites, the All Blacks vs South Africa match should decide who finishes at the top the Pool.

After games against Namibia and Canada, which they will be expected to win comfortably, the All Blacks end their Group Stage with a match against the only team likely to challenge them and South Africa for a spot in Pool B’s top two; Italy. The Italians have struggled during World Cup’s throughout this century, finishing third in their group at the last four tournaments, and though it seems highly probable that the same outcome will occur this year they are more than capable of causing an upset. Most likely that would come against South Africa rather than the Kiwis, but if the New Zealand vs Italy game could be closer than many expect.
