It may be cliched to throw around words like 'fairy tale', but Japan's Rugby World Cup is certainly starting to feel like one. After that remarkable win against hotly tipped Ireland, they now take on a Samoan side fresh from a Scottish spanking. Keep reading to discover how to get a Japan vs Samoa live stream, no matter where in the world you are.
Yep, this time last week Japan were celebrating another phenomenal Rugby World Cup victory, managing to dispatch the Irish by 19 points to 12. If the home country fans weren't already excited enough about the tournament, then that huge win will surely have converted the doubters.
One can't quite imagine influential captain Michael Leitch starting again from the substitutes bench. He really was the difference maker last weekend. Winger Kotaro Matsushima – and hat-trick hero against Russia – is also garnering plenty of attention and will be hoping to add to his tally in Toyota today.
For Samoa, it's the last chance saloon. They know that they now have to beat Japan AND Ireland to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in over 20 years. They beat Russia with ease, but then got decimated by Scotland on Monday. Veteran fly-half Tusi Pisi will need to bring all his experience and nous to hurt the hosts.
So which way will it go? Will Japan continue their dream run, or can Samoa ruin the party? Thanks to TechRadar's Japan vs Samoa live stream guide you can discover how to watch this showdown from your corner of the Earth.
How to watch the 2019 Rugby World Cup from outside your country
Watching from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the US or Canada? Then keep scrolling to discover who's showing the match in your country. But if you're abroad this weekend and still want to watch your domestic coverage, then you'll soon find it's geo-blocked by the broadcaster meaning you can't watch it.
At least you wouldn't be able to, if it weren't for the magic (OK, not actual magic) of a VPN. A Virtual Private Network let's you change the IP address of your laptop, phone, tablet or TV streaming device meaning that you can change it back to one that's in your home country and watch the rugby as if you were back there. It's ridiculously easy to do, too.
