All Blacks vs South Africa Live Stream: New Zealand vs South Africa live stream: how to watch Rugby Championship match online. Watching a New Zealand v South Africa live stream is going to be on plenty of rugby fans minds as they collide in the Rugby Championship – this article will help make sure you do not miss a second of the action.
The two nations, who share six Rugby World Cup triumphs between them, played their first games of 2023 in TRC opening round last weekend. The Springboks made light work of Australia, ensuring Eddie Jones’ first game back in charge of the Wallabies ended in defeat, while the All Blacks blitzed Argentina in Mendoza.
With this year’s Rugby Championship being cut down from the usual 12 games to six, on account of this being a Rugby World Cup year, it places extra focus and importance on Saturday’s clash at Eden Park. Below we detail how to watch the second match of their respective campaigns – including details on using ExpressVPN to watch when you’re away from home.
The Springboks retain only five players who beat Australia as Eben Etzebeth returns to captain the side in the second row alongside Lood de Jager while Kwagga Smith, Franco Mostert and Jasper Wiese feature in the back row. Faf de Klerk and Damian Willemse are selected as the half-back pairing. There are also returns for Damian de Allende, Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe in the backs division. New Zealand start Richie Mo’unga at fly-half and have brought in Brodie Retallick, Mark Telea, Samisoni Taukei’aho and Will Jordan. Uncapped prop Tamaiti Williams has also been selected in the match-day 23.
