There’ll be no Mako Vunipola as England and France contest the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup final at 2pm. The prop forward has picked up an Achilles problem but there will still be plenty for the two thousand England supporters at Twickenham to enjoy, even if the bars will be firmly closed. Watching from home? Here’s how to watch an England vs France live stream free from anywhere in the world.
England progressed to the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup final as winners of Pool A having beaten Georgia, Ireland and Wales in convincing style. France, meanwhile, beat Scotland and Italy to take their place at the top of Pool B.
But with French clubs limiting their players to only three international games over the extended autumn test window, Les Bleus will be missing most of their top stars on Sunday.
First-choice options such as Antoine Dupont, Teddy Thomas and Virimi Vakatawa will be replaced by a host of young guns. Not that Eddie Jones’s men will be taking it easy – France won the under-20 World Championships in both 2018 and 2019.
Jones has called up 20-year-old Wasps hooker Alfie Barbeary. And while Jonathan Joseph is unavailable, Joe Marchant and Jacob Umaga have returned to the squad after injury.
England vs France kicks off at 2pm at Twickenham. Follow our guide below to live stream every tackle and try for free…

How to watch England vs France from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant services to stream England vs France, you won’t be able to use them 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 as NordVPN.

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 rugby. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one 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.
