While Wales may have claimed the No.1 ranking, the All Blacks go into the six-week tournament as favourites. Network 10 and Fox Sports share the broadcasting rights, but with a dedicated 24-hour World Cup channel, 503, and all games live and available in 4K, the latter will lead the way; adding special documentaries and the introduction of match “minis” – offering viewers with an edited package of each game. Australia play Fiji in its first match at 2.45pm on what is being billed as ‘Super Saturday’ – with France v Argentina at 5.15pm, and New Zealand v South Africa at 7.45pm to follow.
