Rugby World Cup 2019

As the Rugby World Cup 2019 goes into full force in Japan, our hunger for the game is growing. There’s no doubt that expats love getting together to watch Rugby live sports and support their nation. Thanks to the tournament being held in Japan, those of us who are watching the matches live from Australia are rallying together at our local sports pubs.

In this article, we cover some of the best sports pubs around Australia showing the Rugby World Cup 2019 matches live and with sound.

This will be the first time the tournament will be held in Asia, the first time consecutive tournaments have been staged in the same hemisphere, and also the first time that the event will take place outside the traditional heartland of the sport.
