There isn’t much to be said about the All Blacks that hasn’t already been said. The awesome powerhouse of a rugby nation are the World Cup’s most successful side and are in hot pursuit of an unheralded three straight titles.

That means their assortment of superstars including Beauden Barrett, Kieran Read, Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick have had a full two weeks rest for this one.

Ireland would do well to turn their attention away from those thoughts, and on the videos of their two recent victories over the All Blacks – the last less than a year ago in Dublin the last time the two sides met. Japan hasn’t been plain sailing for them and they fell to a shock defeat to the hosts, but Johnny Sexton remains one of the world’s best players and the likes of Conor Murray, Rob Kearney, Robbie Henshaw and CJ Stander are all undeniably world class, too.

How to watch a Rugby World Cup live stream anywhere else in the world
If you’ve ever before tried to watch domestic television online when abroad, you’ll already know about geo-blocking. Broadcasters only let you watch if you’re in your home country, which means you need to get a bit creative if you’re away on holiday or business and want to watch the ITV or RTÉ coverage today.
Instead, you can use a VPN – or Virtual Private Network – which allows you to change the IP address of your laptop or mobile to a server in another country so you appear to be in a completely different location. It’s encrypted, making it also a safer way to navigate the web. Thanks to its speed, security and simplicity to use, we’d recommend ExpressVPN as our first choice. Indeed, we like it so much, we gave it a coveted T3 Award!
ExpressVPN has the benefit of a 30-day money back guarantee and let’s you watch on five devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc and you’ll also get 49% off and 3 months FREE if you sign up to an annual plan.
Once it’s been downloaded and installed, open the app and select a UK server location (it’s super easy) and then head over to either of the ITV Hub or (our preferred choice) TVPlayer.com from 11.15am WET/BST / 10.15pm NZT / 6.15am ET / 3.15am PT in time to live stream the match.
