Watch All Blacks vs Ireland Rugby World Cup live online: TV guide

Posted: 19 October 2019 9:00 am

The All Blacks play Ireland in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals. The two most recent world number ones will clash in a do-or-die battle. Here's your full preview and broadcast details.

SUMMARY: The best way to watch All Blacks vs Ireland live is through Kayo Sports. You can watch the entire Rugby World Cup quarter-finals for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Ireland entered the Rugby World Cup (RWC) ranked as the best in the world, but the All Blacks have since taken that title back. The two will now meet in the RWC quarter-finals where one team's journey will end. All Blacks vs Ireland is on 19 October.

Who will win All Blacks vs Ireland?

After Ireland lost to Japan during the pool stage, many pundits put a line through them. Ireland's form coming into the tournament was also less than impressive, considering they were ranked number one.

Other than the All Blacks' first tournament clash with the Springboks they've had it easy. The side's last pool match against Italy was cancelled due to Typhoon Higabis.

This will mean the All Blacks haven't played a match in 13 days. Ireland will be looking for any signs of rust and try to capitalise on that potential lack of match sharpness.

Ultimately you can't discredit Ireland's recent record against the All Blacks. No other side in the world can claim they've won two of their past three matches against New Zealand. Maybe that plays on Kiwi minds too, though right now the All Blacks look formidable.
