Even with the Rugby World Cup just around the corner, it feels like today's match between Australia and New Zealand is a big one. As well as the finale of the 2019 Rugby Championship, it's also the first leg of a Bledisloe Cup double header. Any rugby match between these giants is worth a watch, and this guide will explain how to live stream Australia vs New Zealand – no matter where on Earth you are.
The Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia is ready to play host to the Bledisloe Cup – a trophy the home side haven't not won since 2002. Having lost their first Rugby Championship match against South Africa, the Aussies now have their tails up following their second match victory over Argentina. New Zealand go into today's match looking to get back to winning ways after their hard-fought draw against South Africa.
The big team news for Australia is James O’Connor's emergence from the international wilderness, earning his first test start since 2013 at outside centre. Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has also called in Allan Alaalatoa, Tolu Latu and Nic White to his starting XV. They'll all be eager to impress with the World Cup now only a few weeks away.
Having won 10 of their last 11 matches against the Wallabies, the All Blacks will no doubt go into the game full of confidence, but Steve Hansen looks set to field a much-changed side. Brodie Retallick is ruled out with a dislocated shoulder and is set to be replaced by the fit again Scott Barrett, while Ardie Savea and Aaron Smith both look set to start.
It's set to be a full-bloodied encounter between two of rugby's biggest rivals. Read on to see how you can catch a 2019 Rugby Championship live stream of Australia vs New Zealand.
