Ireland vs New Zealand live stream: how to watch today’s rugby union from anywhere

The autumn international rugby clashes continue in a packed week three that sees Ireland take on New Zealand. This should make for a great game as Ireland and the All Blacks are number one and two in the world rankings – and you can live stream Ireland vs New Zealand from absolutely anywhere – and absolutely free.

New Zealand's Sonny Bill Williams is injured so will be replaced by Ryan Crotty for the game. Other than that it'll be the same side that managed to just beat England in their last match. It's an intimidating XV, but its weaknesses were exposed by England last week and we know they can be beaten after South Africa did a number on the All Blacks in NZ earlier in the season.

Ireland's side will have second-row Devin Toner to help make up for the failing line-out against Argentina in their last match. Rob Kearney and Garry Ringrose are now fit so they're in the back line once more. Dan Leavy replaces Sean O'Brien as flanker, while scrum-half Kieran Marmion and Bundee Aki are both match fit again following injuries. Can they repeat their famous victory from this time two years ago?
