The Brumbies and Waratahs will clash in Round 7 of the Super Rugby competition, with plenty on the line as the two sides fight for important competition points in the Australian Conference. Here’s how you can watch the blockbuster derby online and on TV in Australia.
To watch any and every match of the Super Rugby season in Australia, you’ll need to get acquainted with Fox Sports. They are available via Foxtel, with the network holding the exclusive rights to live coverage of the competition.
To watch the coverage on Fox Sports, you will need to have a valid Foxtel iQ3 subscription.
Their coverage of the Waratahs vs Brumbies will begin at 7:30pm (AEDT), or at the conclusion of the game before it between the Blues and Sharks, which kicks off at 5:35pm (AEDT).
If you’re looking to stream the match online, then just like watching it on TV, the only way to do so will be through Foxtel. To do so, you’ll need to use one of their dedicated streaming applications.
There are two options. The first of those is the Foxtel App³, which is best to use if you have a TV subscription. With correct login details, it is free to use and download.
If you don’t have a TV subscription to Foxtel, you will need to use Foxtel Now, which allows you to stream the channels of Foxtel. Packages start from $39 per month with the sports package, which you will need to watch the game between the Brumbies and Waratahs.

The game is scheduled to kick-off at 7:45pm (AEDT) on Saturday, March 31 with Canberra’s GIO Stadium set to play host.
The Australian conference is more cut-throat than ever this season. With the scrapping of the Western Force, the four remaining Australian teams – the Waratahs, Brumbies, Reds and Rebels – are joined by the Sunwolves.
With the conference winner guaranteed a spot in the finals, the Brumbies and Waratahs are both attempting to keep pace at the top of the leaderboard at the halfway point of the season approaches.
With the New Zealand teams again looking strong, the fight for finals spots outside of the conference winners will come down to the wire and beating conference rivals is pivotal, making this a huge match for both sides.
