Round 3 of the Autumn Nations Cup throws up a simple task for the Irish – they need to deliver nothing less than a rout at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin today to keep their dreams of winning rugby union’s newest international tournament alive. Read on as our guide explains how to watch Ireland vs Georgia live stream – including for FREE in some countries!
Coach Andy Farrell’s Irish side struggled in the face of England’s speed and physicality as they were beaten 18-7 at Twickenham last weekend. To have any hope of making the finals, the Boys In Green need a bonus point win along with Wales pulling off a shock against the table-topping English.
Free Ireland vs Georgia live stream
Kick-off for Ireland vs Georgia is scheduled for 2pm GMT in the UK and Ireland, which is 9am ET / 6am PT in the US. Anyone in Ireland and the UK can watch the game FREE on TV or online via RTE and Channel 4 – and with the help of a good VPN you can take your preferred local coverage with you wherever you are to tune in just like you would at home.
Georgia have so far lived up their billing as the tournament’s rank outsiders, having been brushed aside 18-0 by Wales followed by a 40-0 thrashing at the hands of England.
The last meeting between these two sides saw Ireland score six tries to beat Georgia 49-7 during the 2014 autumn internationals, with the Irish maintaining a 100% record having won all four previous matches against the Lelos.
Home side coach Farrell is tipped to field an experimental line-up for Sunday’s clash with fly-half Billy Burns set to be handed a full debut.

How to watch an Ireland vs Georgia live stream from outside your country
If you’re outside your country of residence – whether that be the UK or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll soon discover that you can’t as it is location-restricted. But there’s a way you can watch anyway.
By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s fine print, of course – specifically its terms and conditions.
