The Rugby World Cup will get serious on Saturday afternoon as what looks like the group of death gets underway with a crucial match between France and Argentina. This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The match is scheduled to be played at the Tokyo Stadium in Japan’s capital city, with kick-off scheduled for 5:15pm (AEST) on Saturday, September 21.
The match is expected to conclude at around 7pm (AEST). Japan is just one hour behind Australia, so kick-off is 4:15pm local time.
While England are likely to top Group C, France and Argentina could also hold legitimate claims to the position, with all three sides expecting to make the knockout stages of the tournament, making this game a pivotal one, with the team who takes home the victory taking a huge stride forward, and the loser making life very tough for themselves.
In Australia, the only way to watch this match on TV will be through the official broadcaster of the Rugby World Cup, Fox Sports.
While the tournament opener, Wallabies games and most of the finals will be simulcast on Channel 10, the rest of the games are exclusive to the Foxtel channel.
They will broadcast the match on Channel 503, with rolling coverage following the Wallabies earlier clash with Fiji, which should finish around 45 minutes before the scheduled kick-off in this game.
That means, that to watch this game on TV, you’ll need to make sure you have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
