Will the Rugby World Cup 2023 be on TV?

The 2023 Rugby World Cup is getting under way on Friday 8 September when hosts France take on much-fancied New Zealand in a mouth-watering opener in Paris.

A lop-sided draw means pools A and B are stacked with much of the world’s heavyweight nations and sees South Africa, Ireland and Scotland all fighting to qualify from the same group.

Chile make their tournament debut after beating Canada and the USA in Americas qualifying, while Portugal are set to return to the World Cup for the first time in 16 years.

Here is how to watch the tournament on TV in the UK – details of the knockout stages will be decided at a later date. Get all the Rugby World Cup odds here and the latest tips and odds on England vs Argentin
