After all that waiting, the All Blacks and Wallabies reminded us what international rugby is all about last weekend. A terrific encounter eventually ended 16-16… and now they’re back for more! We have your full guide to getting a New Zealand vs Australia live stream of their second Bledisloe Cup game no matter where in the world you are and, perhaps mostly importantly, how you can watch it absolutely FREE.
New Zealand vs Australia – where and when
The second New Zealand vs Australia match will be played at Eden Park in Auckland on Sunday, October 18. Kick-off is at 4pm NZDT local time, so that’s 2pm AEDT for Aussies (and 4am BST in the UK). Australians can watch the clash free-to-air on Network 10, on Foxtel or on Kayo Sports, while you’ll need to be a Sky Sports subscriber in New Zealand.
This is the second of four matches between the sides, concluding with two matches in Australia that will make up part of this year’s reduced Rugby Championship.
New Zealand have won 11 of their last 13 Tests against Australia, and boast a formidable 23-game, 19-year winning streak on home soil. That said, they haven’t played in almost a year and the Wallabies come into these matches as something of an unknown quantity. Along with Dave Rennie installing an entirely new coaching staff line up, more than a third of the 44-man Aussie squad start uncapped.
What isn’t uncertain is that you expect this to be a hard fought game between the sport’s two biggest rivals. Watch it all, no where you are in the world and for FREE, using our New Zealand vs Australia live stream guide.
How to live stream New Zealand vs Australia from outside your country
Wanting to watch the rugby from Down Under, the UK or in North America? Just scroll down and you’ll see all your options listed out there. But you’ll run into problems if you try to access that stream online when you’re outside of your country – even if you’re fully registered and in all likelihood paying a subscription fee.
This is because of something called geo-blocking – best thought of as a kind of digital border – but it’s not nearly as scary as it sounds. Simply follow our VPN advice below and you’ll soon be up and running with a great bit of software that allows you to relocate your device back to your country of residence – thereby regaining access to all the streaming services and content you normally enjoy at home.

Can I watch New Zealand vs Australia live in the US?
While ESPN+ and NBC Sports Gold are usually on hand to show top-tier rugby action in the USA, there’s currently no confirmed broadcaster for this weekend’s All Blacks vs Wallabies clash in America.
If the TV situation changes, we’ll be sure to let you know, but in the meantime the only alternative is to use one of our best VPN services as described above, set your location to a country on this page that is broadcasting and go from there. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the country the service is from.
Streaming New Zealand vs Australia in Canada
Much like the US, the regular broadcaster of rugby in Canada (TSN), doesn’t currently have this match on their schedule.
