Can Steve Borthwick's men level the series at the All Blacks' Auckland stronghold?

England suffered the narrowest of defeats last weekend, so now they’ll be out to level the series with a victory in a second test that’s about to kick-off. Viewers in the UK or Ireland can watch an All Blacks v England live stream on Sky Sports. There are also viewing options if you’re elsewhere on planet Earth right now – including numerous countries where the match is available FOR FREE on New Zealand Rugby’s NZR+ service.

Don’t worry if you happen to be travelling overseas for the second test. You can still use a VPN to watch New Zealand v England from abroad.

It’s a cool, dry evening at Eden Park in Auckland, where the All Blacks’ unbeaten run stretches back 30 years. In fact, England haven’t beaten the hosts anywhere in New Zealand since 2003, though they did run the All Blacks extremely close in Dunedin last Saturday, coming out on the wrong side of a 16-15 scoreline after a scintillating test match. Head coach Steve Borthwick is mostly keeping faith with the XV who ran the All Blacks so close: Fin Baxter replaces the injured Joe Marler at loosehead, and Freddie Steward is a late replacement for George Furbank at full-back. New Zealand boss Scott Robertson has made a single change, with Finlay Christie coming in for TJ Perenara at scrum-half.

This eagerly anticipated second test kicks off at 8.05am BST (7.05pm NZST). This guide tells you everything you need to know to watch an All Blacks v England live stream wherever you are, and also includes details of how to use a VPN to tune in to the second test if you’re away from home at the weekend. Scroll down for the line-ups.

Watch New Zealand v England from abroad

Away from home for work or a vacation today? That doesn’t mean you have to miss the second test. Rugby-loving fans who are travelling overseas can watch their usual service with the help of a VPN.

A VPN – or Virtual Private Network – is a handy piece of software that allows you to change your device’s IP address. This means you can view live or on-demand TV content as if you were sitting at home in front of your own television – even when you’re overseas.

The technology experts from TechRadar love NordVPN for its strong privacy features, ease of use, and the fact it allows you to watch your favourite TV on multiple devices simultaneously. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support, and it’s currently available at a knockdown price.
