Now the World Cup has come down to its last 80 minutes, who will be going home with the Webb Ellis trophy? England will face South Africa in a repeat of the 2007 final, with The Springboks hoping to come out on top again. But England has looked strong throughout the tournament and will want to show the same type of form that saw them overturn the All Blacks in the semis.
New Zealand and Wales will also play in the Bronze Final to determine which team finishes third in the tournament. This game is usually a bit of a damp squib, but the only team that Wales’ coach Warren Gatland has failed to beat during his tenure is the ABs, and he will be hoping to create a bit of history in his last game in charge. But Steve Hansen’s men will be a wounded beast after last weekend and will also be hoping to give their own departing coach a winning send-off.
How to Watch Rugby World Cup 2019 in Australia
The 2019 Rugby World Cup is available for streaming on several providers in Australia. While both free-to-air and pay-TV networks have secured the rights to screen games at the World Cup, not all matches will be screened on free to air. Foxtel – and their stablemate Kayo Sports – will, however, screen every game of the World Cup live and exclusive. Free-to-air provider Channel Ten will show every one of the Wallabies’ four group matches, as well as two of the four quarter-finals, both semi-finals, the third-place playoff and the final.
The upcoming quarter-finals look like being the most closely contested the tournament has ever seen, and only the bravest would bet against a major upset. Games take place across the weekend of the 19th and 20th of October, with the Wallabies set to take on old rivals England, and Japan hoping to inflict back-to-back tournament wins over the mighty South Africa. All matches are available live with no ad breaks on Foxtel and Kayo.
Watch the Rugby World Cup Online
From the tournament opener to the final, every game will be live on Foxtel and Kayo Sports. During the group stages, only Wallabies games will be available on free-to-air – while Wallabies matches will also be available on Foxtel/Kayo.
Whilst the semi-finals, final and third-place playoff will all be on Channel 10 and Foxtel/Kayo, Channel 10 has rights to broadcast only two of the four quarter-finals. As yet these have not been set in stone. However, it’s more than likely at least one of these will feature the Wallabies (if they reach that stage). As the Wallabies are in Group D, this is likely to be QF 3 if the Wallabies win their pool, or QF 1 if they finish runner up.
