England and South Africa face off today for the first time since the Springboks defeated Eddie Jones’s men in the 2019 World Cup final. But the rivalry has taken on a real bitterness in the last two years, with England utterly convinced of their own superiority. This is going to be fiery, so read on as our guide explains how to get an England vs South Africa live stream and watch the huge Autumn International rugby match online today – no matter where you are.
The summer’s ill-tempered British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa has added further fuel to the inferno for many in the England camp, while the Boks – snubbed by the World Rugby Awards this week – aren’t short of incentive either.
Cheslin Kolbe’s continued absence will be a huge relief to England, who are missing Jamie George and Owen Farrell themselves. That thrusts Marcus Smith firmly back into the limelight.
England are yet to concede a try in this year’s Autumn Internationals, but South Africa will push them to their limits. Their Bomb Squad remains legendary, but if anyone knows how to combat it, it’s conductor Matt Proudfoot – now leading England’s counter striking Fight Club.
It’s the highest profile game of the weekend, so follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a rugby live stream, including ways that you can watch England vs South Africa for FREE.

If you’re abroad right now and try to stream the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t, as it’s location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s fine print, of course – specifically its terms and conditions.
