Quick – you're missing it! Ireland vs England is on and some rugby union pundits are saying that the 2019 Six Nations opener could well be the decider, too. As if that wasn't pressure enough, this year will also see the teams play in the Rugby World Cup, meaning this performance could set the level for the rest of the year. All that excitement and pressure can be enjoyed by you, live, using this guide that will tell you how to stream England vs Ireland from anywhere in the world.
The reigning Six Nations champions, Ireland, may be favourites but the England team looks very strong indeed with the mighty Manu Tuilagi back for the first time since 2014 following recurring injuries. He'll be joined by both the Vunipola brothers, Maro Itoje, Elliot Daly starting as full-back and captain Owen Farrell.
Meanwhile, Ireland's Johnny Sexton (the reigning World Player of the Year, no less) has had knee issues for some time due to tendon trouble. Similarly, scrum-half Luke McGrath is out due to knee ligament damage, but Conor Murray's knee has recovered so he will be back on the field.
This game is set to be a powerful clash and is not to be missed. What's more, it's free-to-air in the UK, and you can even tune in for free by using a VPN if you're outside the country today.
