Rugby Championship live stream: How to watch every match live

The 2022 Rugby Championship is still in the balance heading into the final round.

New Zealand sit atop the table, level on 14 match points with South Africa but with a better points difference. It’s expected that one of those two sides will lift the trophy, but Australia and Argentina are still mathematically in with a chance of lifting the trophy.

Australia, who came so close to beating the All Blacks in Melbourne last week, need a bonus-point win at Eden Park to put themselves in contention – but they also need to deny New Zealand a losing bonus and for Argentina to convincingly beat the Springboks.

While it is also possible for Argentina to win the competition, it is unlikely. Not only would they need the All Blacks and Springboks to lose without picking up a bonus point but they’d need Australia to win without a bonus point and to make up a huge points difference deficit (they’re currently on -43).

It’s sure to be a fascinating weekend, with the All Blacks kicking things off against the Wallabies before the Springboks host the Pumas in Durban – those in the later fixture will know exactly what is required to win the title before the first whistle.

Who will come out on top? Find out how to watch the final round matches wherever you are with our Rugby Championship live stream guide.
