Just 40 minutes separates England and South Africa from 2019 Rugby World Cup final glory. Yokohama in Japan is the setting for the grand finale and it’s all to play for – but you really don’t need us to tell you the sheer magnitude of this game. However, you might need our help to get a free England vs South Africa live stream, especially if you’re abroad today.
Eddie Jones’ side head into the Rugby World Cup final as slight favourites, having pulled-off one of England’s greatest Rugby World Cup performances by beating reigning champs New Zealand 19-7 in their semi-final.
After losing to the All Blacks in their opening pool game, South Africa have made their way to the final somewhat under the radar, displaying some impressive defensive play coupled with incredible physicality.
The big test for England will be ensuring that they haven’t peaked following such a momentous semi-final victory. Eddie Jones has named an unchanged team, with skipper Owen Farrell, top try-scorer Jonny May and prop Kyle Sinckler all having been passed fit despite picking up knocks in their bruising win over the All Blacks.
South Africa have also received a selection boost with news that lightning wing Cheslin Kolbe has recovered from an ankle injury and will take his place in the Springboks starting line-up. Kolbe’s return in place of Sbu Nkosi is the only change to the South Africa side that played Wales, as coach Rassie Erasmus’s team look to win the World Cup for the third time.
Can England pull one more world-class display out of the bag, or will the battling Springboks lift the Webb Ellis Cup once more? You can watch all the action from pretty much anywhere on Earth by following our England vs South Africa Rugby World Cup Final live stream guide below.
