England vs Ireland rugby union – where and when
Today’s rugby union Test match between England and Ireland takes place at Twickenham Stadium in West London.
All the action begins at 3pm BST.
Eddie Jones’ experimental side failed to make it two wins in as many weeks over their Welsh opponents. A much stronger XV is set to be deployed at Twickenham today for their third World Cup warm up match.
All eyes will be on George Ford (fly-half) and Owen Farrell (inside centre), with the pair brought together for the first time in over a year.
The Irish will be keen to make amends for their heavy Six Nations defeat to England in Dublin back in February – a defeat that ended a two-game winning streak for the Boys In Green. Coach Joe Schmidt has a number of injury concerns going into the match, with Johnny Sexton the key absentee due to a thumb sprain.
With the World Cup edging ever closer, today’s match will offer a decent insight into how well both teams preparations for Japan are going. Keep reading to discover how to get an England vs Ireland live stream.
How to live stream today’s rugby from outside your country
If you’re outside your home country – whether that be the UK or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll realise that you can’t as it’s location restricted. Fear not, the action is still within your reach. All you need to do is download and install a VPN to effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage (assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s TS&Cs), minus the risk of using a naughty stream from an illegal source.
It’s really easy to get started with a VPN – simply download, install, open the app and select the appropriate location.
We’ve tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best thanks to its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it’s compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc). Express is excellent, but there are other fantastic VPN options out there as well – here are our current top three entrants on our best VPN countdown:
1. ExpressVPN: the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day money back guarantee and/or 3 months FREE with an annual plan
2. NordVPN: one of the most affordable VPNs out of the big guns
3. IPVanish: supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go
