Where to watch the Rugby World Cup final in London and England: pubs, clubs, events and special screenings

Watch Eddie Jones’s England take on the Springboks in Saturday’s final

England vs. South Africa 

  • What: 2019 Rugby World Cup final 
  • When: Saturday 2 November  
  • Where: International Stadium, Yokohama, Japan 
  • Referee: Jérôme Garcès (France)
  • UK start time: 9am

Before the Rugby World Cup semi-final victory against New Zealand Eddie Jones urged England fans in Japan and back home to “have a few pints” and “cheer loudly” for the team.

With the crushing defeat of the All Blacks England stormed into the Rugby World Cup final and head coach Jones will no doubt expect fans to once again be ready to get behind the team. 

Saturday’s final clash against South Africa may be an early start at 9am but that won’t stop England fans from packing the pubs, rugby clubs and bars for the Yokohama showpiece.
