Wales face Scotland at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli on Saturday 31st October in the the final round of the 2020 Six Nations Championship (kick off 2.15pm). Fancy watching Gregor Townsend’s men face off against last year’s Grand Slam champions? Here’s how to watch a Wales vs Scotland free live stream.

Free-to-air channel BBC will broadcast Wales vs Scotland in the UK. Going to be outside the UK this Saturday? No problem. UK citizens can use a VPN to access ITV from anywhere in the world. Follow our guide to pick up a 2020 Six Nations live stream now.

2020 Six Nations table
TEAM PL W D L PD BP PTS
Ireland 4 3 0 1 38 2 14
England 4 3 0 1 15 1 13
France 4 3 0 1 13 1 13
Scotland 4 2 0 2 14 2 10
Wales 4 1 0 3 25 3 7
Italy 4 0 0 4 -105 0 0

Scotland’s distant title hopes evaporated when Ireland thrashed Italy earlier in the week, so the 2018 Calcutta Cup champions will be keen to prove a point this weekend.

Scotland have not claimed an away win against Wales for 18 years but the return of Exeter Chiefs’ trophy double-winning stars Stuart Hogg, Jonny Gray and Sam Skinner could aid Gregor Townsend’s in their quest to erase that painful record.

Wales go into Saturday’s match as favourites, having secured a tense 18-11 victory over Scotland on their way to winning the 2019 Six Nations Championships title. That said, it’s not been a vintage tournament for Wales – Wayne Pivac’s men have conceded 15 tries in four back-to-back defeats so far. Pivac will be under intense scrutiny should his side concede victory to Scotland in Llanelli. 

With a win essential for Wales, and Scotland seeking to exploit their opponents’ poor form, Wales vs Scotland should provide a thrilling start to the final day of the 2020 Six Nations, ahead of England vs Italy at 4.45pm.  

Here’s how to get a Wales vs Scotland live stream ahead of kick off at 2.15pm GMT.

Trying to access BBC and ITV 2020 Six Nations streams from outside the UK – if you’re on holiday or working abroad, for example – is still a problem. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a UK national.

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 as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, 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 or website and you’re in.
