Rugby World Cup 2019 Quarter-final: How to watch New Zealand vs Ireland

The 2019 Rugby World Cup kicked off on Friday 20 September with hosts Japan beating Russia to get the hosts started the game. We are now in the final stages of the quarter, with eight teams remaining.

But when are these games and how can you watch them?

Read on to find out.


New Zealand v Ireland

From New Zealand to Ireland at 11:15 am at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday 19 October. The world's best-placed and for many tournament favorites, New Zealand will face fourth place in Ireland, who have not had a smooth campaign in this World Cup. The referee will be Nigel Owens and the winner will face England in the semi-finals.

Wales vs. France

Wales will play France at 08:15 at the Oita Stadium on Sunday 20 October. Wales' Warren Gatland, the world's number two will take on France, ranked eighth. The match will be overseen by Jaco Paper and we suspect that Wales will be fairly easy to progress to the semi-finals.

Japan vs. South Africa

Hosts Japan will face South Africa at 11:15 am at Tokyo Stadium on Sunday 20 October. Some of the most willingly supported the game in the quarter-finals, will Japan's seventh racket challenge the chances of knocking down fifth place in South Africa? This will be a must watch match. He will referee Wayne Barnes.

Japan hosts - remember the time difference

The big thing to remember for the 2019 Rugby World Cup is that the games take place in the afternoon or evening in Japan, which means that if you are in the UK, they will be played in the morning.

The first match started at 19:45 in Japan, which was 11:45 in the UK. When Ireland faced Scotland on Sunday 22 September at 08:45 BST, so it's rugby for breakfast.

Where can I watch the Rugby World Cup?

ITV has exclusive UK coverage and games will be shown on ITV and some on ITV4. This means the games are free to watch for those in the UK.

You can also stream games via ITV hub. You will have to sign up for an account and verify your email address - after that you can transfer through your browser or through an app on your smartphone or tablet.

Will there be a Rugby World Cup in 4K with HDR?

Not in the UK. ITV will be showing in HD, but that's how far it goes. If you want 4K coverage, you'll have to watch Foxtel in Australia.
