Rugby World Cup 2015 Live TV Preview

On the 18th of September the 2015 Rugby World Cup made its official debut, when host nation England defeated Fiji 35-11 at Twickenham Stadium to secure the bonus. The English side was rightly confident, as they knew what it takes the win the Web Ellis (2003), but became the first host to be eliminated from a chance at the knock-out stage.

The New Zealand All Blacks remain the top pick on entering, and while no team has ever successfully retained the Web Ellis trophy, the Kiwi’s supporters believe that trend is going to change and for good reason- the All Blacks have only lost twice since the last World Cup was played.

One of New Zealand’s defeats was delivered by Australia during the recently completed Rugby Championship, and the Wallabies will certainly be right in the mix before this World Cup is done and dusted. The Wallabies of Australia are no strangers to the Web Ellis trophy either, having won it twice, with both occasions coming when England or Wales was hosting.

Regarding Wales, they play in Pool A along with England and Australia, so they will have every chance of proving they are one of the best, and to a man are embracing the challenge they face. Wales played England second up on the 26th of September in Cardiff, and overcame a double figure lead to secure a dramatic victory, as well as the emotional edge they will need.

Among the other Northern Hemisphere countries expected to do quite well include Ireland and France. The French side finished runner-up to New Zealand last time around, in a pulse raising Final won 8-7 by the All Blacks. France also has a tremendous record in the World Cup, having finished on the podium in every tournament but one (1991). Quite a contrast to Ireland who’s looking for their first-ever medal, and the reigning Six Nations champs will seek to return to the outstanding form they showed before their most recent setback.

The other team that has garnered much attention is South Africa, like Australia and New Zealand the Springboks own two Web Ellis Cups. South Africa failed to make the podium last time out, but this year their chances to return are very good, given they are favored to win with their Pool in spite of a set-back in their opener against Japan.

The Stage is set for a thrilling tournament, and using the choices offered below you have an opportunity to see the games you want live, and watch the matches you miss fully on replay.
