Where to watch the final week of Autumn Nations Series action in the UK and Ireland

Ireland celebrate - Where to Watch

The final weekend of Autumn Nations Series action is here and all six mouth-watering matches will be broadcast live for fans to watch.

The northern v southern hemisphere battles have provided three weeks of world-class rugby and the last sextet of clashes look set to deliver once more.

The weekend kicks off at 1pm on Saturday afternoon as a wounded Scotland look to bounce back from a tough defeat to South Africa when they host always-entertaining Japan.


The Brave Blossoms lost 60-5 to in-form Ireland a fortnight ago but will have ambitions of repeating their memorable 28-21 victory over the Scots at the 2019 Rugby World Cup when they head to BT Murrayfield.

Also at 1pm, the Kieran Crowley era continues for Italy as they will look to build on a promising couple of performances in the Autumn Nations Series to date by recording a victory over Uruguay in Parma.

Both those games are live on Amazon Prime Video, which is also the place to catch what promises to be a fascinating repeat of the 2019 Rugby World Cup final between England and South Africa.

The Springboks triumphed that day in Yokohama but haven’t won at Twickenham since 2014 – a record they will be keen to rectify in the 3.15pm kick-off.

Wales beat Fiji 38-23 in Cardiff last week to notch their first victory of the Autumn Nations Series, having suffered defeats to New Zealand and South Africa beforehand, and the reigning Guinness Six Nations champions will be eager to end 2021 on a high.

They can do that by beating an Australia side who head to Principality Stadium after defeats at the hands of Scotland and England, with 5.30pm the kick-off time and Amazon Prime Video the place to watch.

And Amazon Prime finish off an enthralling Saturday five-hander with France’s clash against New Zealand from the Stade de France at 8pm.

Not since 2009 have Les Bleus bested the All Blacks but with a talented, young squad getting better every week, and New Zealand coming in off the back of an eye-opening loss to Ireland, France will be quietly confident of breaking that duck in a game that is a preview for the first match of the 2023 Rugby World Cup in the same stadium.

Sadly, all good things must come to an end and Sunday afternoon sees the Autumn Nations Series reach its conclusion with a buoyant Ireland aiming for an autumn clean sweep against Argentina.

The 2015 Rugby World Cup quarter-final defeat may still rankle with the Irish faithful – although that is the only time Los Pumas have beaten them in the last eight attempts – and fans in the UK can watch what happens in the 2.15pm kick-off on Channel 4, while RTÉ Two has coverage in the Republic of Ireland.
