Argentina vs Australia preview: how to watch the 2020 Tri Nations

Australia must beat Argentina on Saturday if Dave Rennie’s Wallabies are to retain any hope of lifting the 2020 Tri Nations trophy. Both teams go into the fixture on the back of momentous wins over the All Blacks, so it should be a cracker. Here’s how to watch a Argentina vs Australia free live stream live from anywhere in the world.

Good news! Rugby fans in Australia can stream Argentina vs Australia live and for free on 10play. The streaming service is only available from within Australia. Going to be abroad? You can use NordVPN to access 10play as if you were back in Oz!

Argentina vs Australia kicks off on 8.45am GMT (6.45pm AEST) at the McDonald Jones Stadium, Australia, on Saturday 21st November.

Both teams have one Tri Nations win so far, but Los Pumas have a game in hand and will be on cloud nine following their shock victory against the All Blacks last week.

The Wallabies with a have a tough job to break down Argentina’s brick wall defence but the Aussies will be in buoyant mood having turned around their Tri Nations fortunes with a 24-22 victory against the All Blacks at the Suncorp Stadium.

Coach Dave Rennie has largely kept the faith with the line-up that helped the Wallabies upset the All Blacks, but injured prop James Slipper will miss out, prompting a recall for Scott Sio. The Aussie veteran gets the nod over 20-year-old Angus Bell, who will again come off the bench.

Meanwhile Argentina coach Mario Ledesma has stuck with the starting line-up that gave the Pumas their first win over New Zealand in 71 years and 30 rugby Test matches. No surprises there.

Argentina vs Australia kicks off at 8.45am UK time on Saturday. Read on to find out how to live stream this weekend’s 2020 Tri Nations action wherever you are.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such NordVPN.

NordVPN (30-day money-back guarantee) £2.86 per month
You can get three months free when you sign up to  two-year plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. NordVPN also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve subscribed, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match, and pick a server which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app and you’re in.

Should you still find yourself geo-blocked, make sure that you have the latest version of your VPN software. If that doesn’t do it, head to the Preferences section and try different protocols.
