Watch every Test from the 2023 Rugby Championship live on Sky Sports; opening matches take place on Saturday with South Africa vs. Australia (3:55pm) and Argentina vs. New Zealand (8:00pm); we examine each team’s star player, championship record, head coach’s thoughts, and squads.
The Wallabies were victorious in 2015, while the Springboks were victorious in 2019. Could lightning possibly strike a third time? There is a trophy up for grabs, and capturing it would be excellent preparation for the World Cup.
This year’s championship is a sprint rather than a marathon due to its shortened three-week format preceding the Rugby World Cup in France, which begins in early September.
🎟️ Tickets are now on public sale for our 2023 home Test Matches in Auckland and Dunedin.

How to watch All Blacks vs Argentina Rugby Championship
ITV has secured the exclusive rights to broadcast the Rugby World Cup in the United Kingdom. Once the broadcaster announces the specific channels for each match, we will provide you with updated information.
Each match’s radio commentary will be broadcast exclusively on BBC Radio 5 Live, 5 Sports Extra, and the BBC Sounds service. According to the BBC, there will be “tailored output” in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Amazon Prime will broadcast the first three England World Cup warm-up games in August, as well as nine other Six Nations matches.
Before traveling to Ireland on August 19, Steve Borthwick’s squad will play a home-and-away doubleheader with Wales. Their final match before departing for France, against Fiji the following weekend at Twickenham, is also likely to be broadcast on Amazon Prime once scheduling issues are resolved.
The streaming service will also broadcast exhibition matches, including France’s match against Eddie Jones’s Australia.
