England vs Italy live stream: how to watch today's Rugby World Cup warm-up online from anywhere
England go into their final warm-up game in Newcastle in great form following a 57-15 drubbing of Ireland at Twickenham, which saw them notch up an impressive eight tries. Don't miss out on any of their latest rugby action by following our tips on getting an England vs Italy live stream below.
With a win and a draw against Wales in their earlier Rugby World Cup warm-up matches, they'll be looking to end their prep on a high today.
The frustration for Ruaridh McConnochie appears to be over, with the wing set to finally make his England debut on Friday night after twice being named in starting line ups only to pull out with an injury before kick-off. There’s no such luck however for Exeter centre Henry Slade who is once again ruled out with a knee injury, meaning he has now missed all of England’s warm up games ahead of the World Cup.
While Conor O’Shea’s Italy chalked up a resounding 85-15 demolition of Russia last month, that win was sandwiched between defeats to Ireland and France in their other World Cup warm-ups, indicating that the Azzurri will struggle to cause any major upsets in Japan.
The match marks the 26th meeting between the two nations in a Test, with England looking to maintain a 100% record having won every one of those previous encounters.
