South Africa vs New Zealand free live stream: can the All Blacks get back to winning ways?
Date: Saturday 6th Aug 2022
Kick off: 4.05pm BST / 1.05am AEST / 11.05am ET
Venue: Mbombela Stadium, South Africa
South Africa face New Zealand on Saturday in what promises to be a blockbuster opener to the 2022 Rugby Championship. With Ian Foster's All Blacks under intense pressure following a string of poor results, the Mbombela Stadium crowd are in for an explosive encounter. Aussies can watch a free live stream with the Stan Sport 7-day trial – and tune into the game using a VPN(opens in new tab) if travelling abroad. Make sure you know how to watch a South Africa vs New Zealand free live stream from where you are.
The team news is in and All Blacks head coach Ian Foster has made four changes for the Rugby Championship opener against the Springboks. Caleb Clarke replaces Sevu Reece, Scott Barrett comes in for the injured Brodie Retallick, Samisoni Taukei’aho is hooker in place of Codie Taylor, and Angus Ta’avao, who was sent off against Ireland in the July Test, replaces Nepo Laulala
Having racked up four defeats in five tests – including their first home loss since 1994, against Ireland in Wellington last month – Ian Foster's position looks increasingly under threat. If the All Blacks, who cruised to victory in last year's Rugby Championship, lose to the Springboks this Saturday, it could be game over.
Rugby Championship live stream: How to watch every match live
The second round of the 2022 Rugby Championship takes place this weekend, with New Zealand and Argentina looking to bounce back from opening defeats by South Africa and Australia respectively.
There’s a new ‘touring’ format to the competition this year. Rather than playing every team home and away, countries will travel on a two-Test tour to one opponent, host a two-Test tour against another, and play home and away against the third.
For example, this year the All Blacks, the defending champions, are playing two matches in South Africa, facing Argentina twice in New Zealand, then playing Australia in Melbourne and Auckland.
