How to watch New Zealand vs Australia Rugby live stream

International rugby returns with a bang this weekend, headed up by this Bledisloe Cup clash in Wellington – read on to find out how to watch New Zealand vs Australia with our live stream guide.

Having been reduced to a two-match series last year to accommodate the Rugby World Cup, the 2019 Bledisloe Cup saw honours even with both sides winning their home matches.

This weekend’s clash marks the first of two consecutive home ties for the All Blacks in this four-match series. The two teams are set to meet next weekend at Eden Park in Auckland ahead of game three next month at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, with the series concluding with Game 4 at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium on December 12 – a match that’s also set to double as the final game of the Rugby Championship.

With a huge war of words breaking out between the two countries’ rugby associations over the scheduling of this year’s games along with disagreements over Covid-19 precautions, there’s a fair chance that the growing off-field animosity could spill out onto the pitch.

With the Wallabies deploying a vastly inexperienced side – over a third of Dave Rennie’s 44-man squad are uncapped – New Zealand are understandably big favourites to take this opening game.

Indeed, any sort of positive result for the Aussies will be against the odds – the Kiwi’s have won 11 of their last 13 Tests against Australia, and have a 19-year winning streak on home turf.
