Ireland vs Italy live stream – How to watch Six Nations 2018 rugby online | Tech | Life & Style


Ireland will host Italy in the first of this weekend’s Six Nations rugby clashes.

The home side are on a high after beating France with the last kick of the game at the Stade de France with a sensational drop goal from Johnny Sexton.

Italy didn’t have such a good start to the tournament being comprehensively beaten, 15-46, by a strong England.

Things could be made even tougher for the visitors today with Ireland head coach Joe Schmidt making four changes to the pack for their first home game of 2018.

Speaking ahead of the Italy game, Ireland boss Joe Schmidt said: “I think Dan (Leavy) visibly, he got straight into the game, carried strongly, got off the line and defended strongly. 

“You just want players to be decisive and grab the game by the scruff of the neck and we think Dan did that.”

So, if you want to watch all the action from the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, here’s how to tune in online.


ITV is showing this afternoon’s match between Ireland and Italy with coverage starting at 1.30pm and kick-off set for 2.15pm. 

You can tune in on your TV or online via ITV’s app.

Now named ITV Hub, this app is available on both Apple iPhone, iPad and most Android devices and is free to download.

Users can also tune in via Amazon Fire TV, YouView, BT Vision, Sky HD, Sky Q, Samsung TV, NOW TV, Freeview Play and Virgin Media.

It’s worth noting that you’ll need a valid TV Licence if you watch or record live programmes as it is a criminal offence in the UK to watch “live” television without a TV licence.

And if you’re away from home and don’t have a decent wifi connection – you might want to avoid watching an entire match on your smartphone.
