Rugby Championship live stream: How to watch every match live
The fourth round of the 2022 Rugby Championship takes place this weekend – and it has been an intriguing tournament to date.
Argentina sit atop the table after bouncing back from an opening-round defeat by Australia to secure a record win over the Wallabies and an historic first victory over the All Blacks on New Zealand soil.
The Wallabies are in second after beating South Africa last weekend, with the world champions bottom of the standings and New Zealand third.
It’s certainly hard to predict results and this weekend sees a rematch of last weekend’s fixtures, with the All Blacks taking on the Pumas in Hamilton and the Wallabies hosting the Springboks in Sydney.
Who will come out on top? Find out how to watch this weekend’s matches wherever you are with our Rugby Championship live stream guide.
