We love a bit of rugby union here in Australia. Whether it’s catching the fourth grade down at your local, or watching the Wallabies on the world stage, there isn’t much like a good game of rugby. And while being a Wallabies fan comes with plenty of heartbreak (looking at you, Jonny Wilkinson!), there’s always something to look forward to, with the 2019 Rugby World Cup the perfect stage for a bit of redemption.
With the competition kicking off on September 20 in Japan, where can you catch all the action back here in Australia? Read on to find out what time you’ll have to tune in to see the Wallabies hit the field – and how to watch.
How can I watch the Rugby World Cup in Australia?
Both Foxtel and Kayo offer full coverage of every match from the 2019 Rugby World Cup, while Channel 10 and Tenplay will showcase all Wallabies group stage matches, along with select matches of the later rounds.
When does the Rugby World Cup start?
The first game of the 2019 Rugby World Cup kicks off on September 20, with the Grand Final to be played on November 2. The Wallabies will feature in Pool D, where they’ll face off against Fiji, Wales, Uruguay and Georgia, with broadcast dates and times listed below:
- Australia Vs. Fiji – September 21, 2:45pm (AEST)
- Australia Vs. Wales – September 29, 5:45pm (AEST)
- Australia Vs. Uruguay – October 5, 3:15pm (AEST)
- Australia Vs. Georgia – October 11, 9:15pm (AEST)
With Australia last lifting the World Cup back in 1999, it’s been a long time between drinks. But with the magic of tournament rugby, anything can happen.
