These modules are smart!

The sporting event of the year is now at the semi-final stage in Japan: the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The ninth edition of the competition takes place over six weeks, culminating in the final in Yokohama on November 2.

Here is how to watch the competition, with TV channel details of each match.

Who is broadcasting in the UK?

ITV has exclusive broadcasting rights for the next two World Cups – the 2019 event in Japan and 2023 in France.

Which TV channel are the games on?

Most Rugby World Cup matches will be aired on ITV, with the exception of 10 which will be shown on ITV 4 (see full fixtures list below).

How many people watch matches in the UK?

Well, according to ITV, there was a peak audience of 11.5 million for England’s matches in 2015 against Fiji, Wales and Australia, and the final.

What were the final pool standings?

As the tournament gets closer to the end, here’s a basic run-down of how it works:

The opening group stage of the competition saw 20 teams attempt to battle their way out of four Pools – A, B, C and D. Each Pool contained five teams and only two advanced into the knockout rounds.

From there it is the standard quarter-final, semi-final, final format.
