Rugby fans will be able to watch live online coverage of England Women’s autumn international series against France and world champions New Zealand next month on RFUTV.
In an upgraded, full HD, five camera production, England matches against France on November 3 and New Zealand on November 23 and 27 will be available to watch at www.rfu.com/englandwomenlive.
Users will be able to watch the match live and then in full for up to three days after the game.
Rivalry between these sides is always fierce so the games are set to be thrillers. England denied France both the Six Nations and the European Cup last season, while four-times world cup winners New Zealand return to English soil determined to avenge their 2011 series defeat.
The five camera feed with match commentary from some of the game’s leading pundits and former England stars, will provide rugby fans with broadcast quality viewing as England go head-to-head against two of the best sides in international rugby.
RFU Digital Editor, Tom Hines, said: “Online streaming is fast becoming an option that sports fans expect of live events. In recent years England Women have become one of English rugby’s most successful sides; as a result they have a fast growing group of very dedicated fans and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to ensure as many of them as possible can see these matches.
England’s final match against New Zealand on December 1 can also be viewed live on Sky Sports 1 HD.
