Stan Sport has confirmed it will show all 20 big international rugby matches over the next five weeks, including all three Wallabies games against Scotland, Wales and England.

Stan has acquired the rights alongside beIN Sports to the 2021 Autumn Nations Series.

On Stan, every match will streaming live and ad-free with full match replays, mini matches, highlights and rapid recaps available.

The 2021 Autumn Nations Series features the historic annual spring tours of the Wallabies, All Blacks, Springboks and Argentina.

The Wallabies face Scotland on Saturday week aiming to win a sixth straight match. The All Blacks will play Wales, Italy, Ireland and France and the Boks face Wales, Scotland and England.

The Autumn Nations Series includes the top 10 nations on the World Rugby rankings, including Japan, Fiji, Tonga, Uruguay and Georgia.

In addition to the men’s action, Stan Sport has also secured rights to the 2021 Women’s Autumn Internationals – comprised of 13 matches involving New Zealand, England, Canada, France, USA, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Japan and South Africa.


“We have had a phenomenal start for Rugby on Stan Sport in 2021, and it is great to see the growing interest for the game,” Stan Acting Chief Executive Officer Martin Kugeler said.

“The Wallabies, All Blacks and Springboks spring tours are a proud tradition on the rugby calendar, and we know fans will enjoy our coverage of every match against their northern hemisphere rivals. This announcement highlights our commitment to continue delivering the world’s best rugby all year round to fans in Australia.”

Wallabies captain Michael Hooper said: “This is a huge result for Australian Rugby fans, to now be able to watch the Wallabies all year round on Stan Sport. The Spring Tour matches are always special occasions, the atmosphere at the stadiums is electric, and they are always great games of footy.

“It’s been a great year for Rugby in Australia, and the partnership with Stan Sport has helped immensely from the community level right through to Test matches.”

BeIN Sports available on Foxtel, Kayo Sports and Fetch TV has also announced it will show the entire Spring Tour.

It means Australian rugby fans have multiple ways to watch all the games.
