How to watch World Rugby 2019 while in New Zealand.

While it is also clear that not all New Zealand fans will make it to Japan for the 2019 rugby world cup, most will look for the best way they can watch the tournament while at home.

If you are among them, the Spark Sports and TVNZ let your worries covered. Spark Sports has acquired the full rights to stream all the matches live in New Zealand. While this will be for the first round, they are a good option among other alternatives.
