How to watch Argentina vs Wales: live stream the rugby union from anywhere
Who says rugby union has to be a winter sport!? If you prefer the oval shaped ball to the round one and have no interest in watching the FIFA World Cup, then seeing Wales travel to Argentina in the rugby may be the antidote you're after. And because there's a free rugby live stream in the UK, you don't have to pay a penny to watch Argentina vs Wales - even if you live abroad.
Argentina vs Wales rugby union - where and when
Wales take on Argentina twice in June down in South America. The games take place at the Estadio del Bicentenario in San Juan and the Estadio Brigadier Lopez in Sante Fe.
The games will take place on Saturday June 9 and 16 at 8.40pm BST, 3.40pm ET, 12.40pm PT, 5.40AM AEST Sunday morning, and 4.40pm local time.
Wales were on the receiving end of a 2-0 beating last time they properly toured Argentina. But that was 12 years a go now, and recent form has gone with Wales with wins in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff in 2013 and 2016. This should be a very competitive series - Argentina have the home advantage but Wales are coming off the back of a close win against South Africa and confidence in the Welsh camp will by high.
The good news is that the UK free-to-air broadcaster Channel 4 is hosting the Argentina vs Wales action. The bad news, is that the station's coverage last week against the Springboks was pretty much maligned by everybody that watched. It's promised to improve it this week, and you can use a VPN to catch it if you live outside the UK.
