Bledisloe Cup 2020 on FOX Sports

FOX Sports screens the 2020 Bledisloe Cup from Sunday, Live and ad-break free during play.

There are two standalone matches played in New Zealand on consecutive Sundays, and two hosted in Australia which will double as The Rugby Championship fixtures.

Analysis and coverage is led by Greg Clark, alongside Phil Kearns and Rod Kafer. On the panel will be Tony Squires joined by Wallabies legends George Gregan and Justin Harrison and All Blacks great Andrew Mehrtens.

The Wallabies, headed up by new coach David Rennie, will be led by captain Michael Hooper alongside Matt To’omua, James O’Connor, Nic White and Jordan Petaia.

Wallabies’ Matt To’omua: “We want that Bledisloe Cup back in Australia almost more than we want the World Cup.”

Kicking off the first two Tests of the series across the Tasman, the Wallabies and All Blacks will lock horns for Game 1 at Wellington’s Sky Stadium on Sunday, October 11. Live pre-game coverage begins from 1.30pm with kick off at 2.00pm AEDT on FOX SPORTS 505.

George Gregan: “It’s that time of year where we play for the Big Cup. It means so much to both teams and both countries. Can the Wallabies get it done in 2020? You’ve got to believe!”

Game 2 will take place the following Sunday, October 18 at Auckland’s Eden Park at 2.00pm AEDT on FOX Sports 505.

The Wallabies will then return home to Australia for The Rugby Championship, also involving New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina.

The remaining two Tests in the Bledisloe Cup series are set to take place on Saturday, November 7 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, before travelling to Sydney for Game 4 on Saturday, December 12 at ANZ Stadium which doubles as a finals match of The Rugby Championship.

  1. Assuming that the game is being played in NZ, I think that the Fox commentators will call the matches from a studio, rather than travel to NZ. Same for Channel 10.

  2. Assuming 10 will screen the matches (it’s in the anti-siphoning list), the second match on October 18th will be on at the same times as Bathurst 1000. I’m assuming the rugby is going to be bumped to one of their SD channels, given the Supercars can top the million mark.
