How to watch Italy Rugby World Cup matches online: TV guide

Posted: 24 September 2019 1:29 pm

Italy Rugby

Italy's first match at the Rugby World Cup is on 22 September. Check out Finder's guide to watch all Italy's matches on TV or live stream to any device.

Known as the Azzuri, Italy are the 14th ranked rugby team in the world. The Italians' record over the last few years is a sight for sore eyes and they haven't recorded a win against a Tier 1 nation since 2016. That leaves a pretty grim outlook on how Italy will fare against powerhouses New Zealand and South Africa in Pool B.

The Azzuri were crushed in the lead-up to the tournament by several highly ranked rival European sides. In fact Italy's only win this year was against Russia.

Italy's Rugby World Cup campaign starts on 22 September against Namibia.
