A day into the 2019 Rugby World Cup and we immediately have one of the most salivating encounters of the tournament. Two of the pre-tournament favourites – the All Blacks of New Zealand and the Springboks of South Africa – face off today, and frankly we're extremely excited. Assuming you are too, keep reading to discover how to get a New Zealand vs South Africa live stream, no matter where in the world you are.
New Zealand need no introduction. Reigning champions and rugby union behemoths, the All Blacks are naturally most commentators' hot tips to take the Web Ellis Cup for a third time running.
With 122 caps, the talismanic back-row forward Kieran Read will lead his team out. The power and guile of Read, Brodie Retallick and Ardie Savea in the pack is matched by the likes of Sonny Bill Williams in the backs. And Beauden Barrett is likely to be a key man today to try and unlock the South Africa defence.
Although underdogs today, South Africa will be buoyed by the late draw that they managed to claim in New Zealand in the Rugby Championship back in July. Substitute scrum-half Herschel Jantjies was the hero that day, but fly-half Handre Pollard is the Springboks' lynch-pin player. Fans will be looking to captain Siya Kolisi's and his fairy tale career to bring the cup back to Africa like they did in 1995 and 2007.
It's a tough one to call, but what we do know is that this is an absolutely unmissable Rugby World Cup pool match. Luckily, there's no reason to miss out thanks to TechRadar's New Zealand vs South Africa live stream guide. Keep reading to discover how to watch this showdown from your corner of the Earth.

How to watch the 2019 Rugby World Cup from outside your country
Watching from New Zealand, Australia, the UK (where it's FREE), US or Canada? Then keep scrolling to discover who's showing the match in your country. But if you're abroad this weekend and still want to watch your domestic coverage, then you'll soon find it's geo-blocked by the broadcaster meaning you can't watch it.
At least you wouldn't be able to, if it weren't for the magic (OK, not actual magic) of a VPN. A Virtual Private Network let's you change the IP address of your laptop, phone, tablet or TV streaming device meaning that you can change it back to one that's in your home country and watch the rugby as if you were back there. It's ridiculously easy to do, too.
