Rugby World Cup 2023 matches today: Schedule and TV coverage – Sunday 17th September
Your complete guide to Rugby World Cup 2023 matches on today, including kick-off times and TV coverage details.
The second round of Rugby World Cup matches wraps up today with three titans of the game in action, each hoping to avoid shock defeats.
England face a potentially dangerous unit in the shape of Japan. They hosted the last RWC in 2019 where they reached the quarter-finals, and can be expected to mount a credible challenge to flee Pool D here.
Elsewhere, reigning champions South Africa will hope for no mistakes against Romania, who were toppled 82-8 by Ireland in their opener, and Australia face Fiji in a firecracker showdown that could be the most electrifying encounter of the weekend.
We will update this page every day to keep you informed about all the matches coming up today, how to watch them and how things are shaping up for the rest of the week.
ITV boast exclusive broadcasting rights throughout the tournament, meaning every moment will be shown live on free-to-air TV.
