Then, on Thursday, September 14th, the second round of the qualifying pool will take place in France as they strive to secure their first ever victory. On Friday September 15th and The All Blacks from New Zealand will contest in two games in ‘Rugby Kingdom’, followed by South Africa’s second qualifying pool game on Sunday 17th. Wales vs Australia is one of the best battles between Pool C powerhouses and this highly anticipated match will be shown live on NTV on Sunday 24th. Finally deciding who is the world’s best team falls to the last match of the pool which is broadcast live on NTV.

Since the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France, NTV has been broadcasting it. With the experience gained in the past four tournaments, we will be able to watch the play that goes beyond common sense to see a new world view as we watch the Japanese national team change history during the broadcast of “Rugby World Cup 2023 France”. Our goal is to make the broadcast as charming as possible, capturing the essence of life to the maximum.
