How to watch and listen to Round 1 of the Autumn Nations Series

Autumn Nations Series action continues this coming weekend with some of the best teams in the world starting their end-of-year campaigns in blockbuster clashes.

Action begins early on Saturday afternoon, with Italy hosting Samoa and Fiji travelling to BT Murrayfield to take on Scotland.

Later in the afternoon Principality Stadium will play host to Wales’ contest against New Zealand, before number one-ranked Ireland play reigning world champions South Africa in Dublin.

Action on Saturday ends with France facing Australia in Paris, before England host Argentina in the final match of the weekend at Twickenham on Sunday.

It promises to be a feast of rugby that will keep you gripped to your TV throughout the weekend, and here’s how you can watch all the action.


In the UK, every match across the Autumn Nations Series is being broadcast live on Amazon Prime with pre and post-match coverage and analysis.

There will be no extra fee for subscribers, and it will cost you £5.99 if you don’t already have an account want to join Prime Video.
