If COVID-19 has created hardship across the face of the globe, it has also helped distil some essential truths more clearly. One of those truths is that the brother nations of New Zealand and Australia work best when they work together.
One of the biggest games of the pool stage at the Rugby World Cup will see the world champion All Blacks tackle the Springboks in a southern hemisphere duel which is sure to attract plenty of eyeballs from all around the world. This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The match between two of the top-ranked sides in the world will be the final of three on Saturday, September 21 at the tournament, with it to be played at the Yokohama International Stadium, and kick-off scheduled for 7:45pm (AEST).
The evening kick-off to the contest should mean the game finishes at around 9:30pm (AEST), capping off a huge day of Rugby which earlier sees Australia take on Fiji, and France play Argentina.
New Zealand and South Africa are the two teams tipped as most likely to advance out of Group B, which also features Italy, Namibia and Canada. This match, without any other upsets later in the tournament, is expected to decide top spot in the group.
The only way to watch this match, as well as every other match of the Rugby World Cup in 2019 will be through Fox Sports.
