    The Wallabies travelled to San Juan to face the Pumas in the second round of the TRC.
    Stan Sport have been confirmed as the broadcasters of Rugby World Cup 2021 and 2023.

    This will see all 26 matches of this year's women's World Cup in New Zealand as well as all 48 matches in the men's event in France next year ad-free, live and on demand on the streaming platform.

    Along with this, Stan also confirmed Wallabies matches and the Final will also be simulcast live on the Nine Network and streamed on 9Now.

    “We are delighted to be partnering with Stan Sport to provide fans in Australia with unrivalled access to our men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups. Stan Sport is the home of rugby in Australia and we are excited by their plans to showcase the sport to new audiences through their innovative content and leading digital platforms," World Rugby CEO Alan Gilpin said in a statement.

    “We are entering what will be a golden decade for rugby in Australia, culminating in hosting of the men’s and women’s Rugby World Cups in 2027 and 2029 respectively.

    "The excitement is building and we are looking forward to working with Stan Sport and our friends at Rugby Australia to get all of Australia excited about rugby once again.”

    The women's World Cup will kick off with a triple-header of action on October 8, headlined by the Wallaroos take on the Black Ferns at Eden Park, aiming for a record crowd for a women's Test.

    This is followed by Pool A matches against Scotland (October 15) and Wales (October 22) as Jay Tregonning side hunts for a maiden title.

    Meanwhile, the Wallabies will kick off their World Cup campaign in 2023 against Georgia on September 9.

    They will then take on Fiji (September 17) and Wales (September 24) as well as a Final Qualifier (October 1).

    “Since Stan Sport’s launch in February 2021, we have invested significantly to build a fresh and comprehensive rugby offering for fans in Australia," Stan Sport CEO Martin Kugeler added.

    "From grassroots to world class internationals and now the pinnacle of the game, the Rugby World Cups, Stan Sport continues to deliver more men's and women’s rugby content than ever before.

    "Together with our great partners at Rugby Australia, we have grown the audience for rugby significantly and this announcement further highlights our commitment to the game.

    "Stan and Nine are uniquely positioned to broadcast the Rugby World Cup to more Australians than ever before with Nine’s Total TV assets (Stan, the Nine Network and 9Now) alongside all of our other channels, including publishing, digital and radio.

    "There is no better place to showcase one of the biggest events in global sport and we can’t wait for the women’s World Cup action to kick off in New Zealand this October.”

    Seems a bit redundant to tell us in August 2022 that they have the rights to the 2021 rugby world cup!

    It is actually called Rugby World Cup 2021 even though it is starting October 2022

    It was postponed due to COVID and they haven't changed the name for whatever reason (I can see some reasons why they have kept the name)
