How to watch Rugby World Cup: live stream RWC 2023 online today


The 10th edition of the Rugby World Cup is underway with hosts France besting the All Blacks, Ireland, Italy and Australia crushing minnows and England kicking their way to a resilient 14-man victory over Argentina. Today sees three more matches from RWC 2023 as 20 nations battle for the Webb Ellis Cup. Japan and Chile meet in the early kickoff, then there’s a big one as the mighty South Africa take on a talented Scotland and we finish with a predicted tight fixture with Wales against Fiji.

You won’t want to miss a second of the action and, thankfully, you won’t have to, because all 48 games will air for free on ITV in the UK and some on Australia’s 9Now service too. And don’t worry if you’re away — because you can watch the 2023 Rugby World Cup from anywhere with a VPN.

Four years after South Africa overwhelmed England in Japan to win the World Cup for a third time, the RWC 2023 gets going in nine venues across France. The hosts are joint favorites to lift the trophy along with the All Blacks, while many believe the Springboks could make it back-to-back triumphs.

However, it is Ireland who enter the tournament with the world number one ranking thanks to Andy Farrell’s side’s 13-game winning streak that includes the scalp of New Zealand and a Six Nations trophy. There is real belief in the Irish camp that they can go all the way in France.

It is a far different story for two more of the traditional rugby powerhouses, though. Little is expected of a young and inexperienced Australia, while England have been on a dreadful run and recently lost to Fiji for the very first time. Both will be determined to prove their doubters wrong.

Of course, no World Cup would be complete without a dark horse and many believe Argentina fit the bill. The Pumas finished third in 2007 when the World Cup was last held in France and possess plenty of talent.

It’s certain to be a fascinating tournament and you can follow it all by watching Rugby World Cup live streams. We’ll show you how to do that below, wherever you are in the world.
