Watch England vs Wales live stream

Although the opening weekend of this year's Six Nations may have reminded us to expect the unexpected, there's one thing you can be certain of – when it comes to rugby union, England vs Wales is always an event worth tuning into.

With rain in the air at Twickenham, there's a chance the game could turn into a kick fest and George Ford and co will undoubtedly want to put 21-year-old full-back Cameron Winnett under pressure from the start.

Today's England vs Wales match at the 2024 Six Nations is free to watch on ITV in the UK and RTÉ in Ireland. Peacock TV and DAZN are the live streamers in the USA and Canada respectively. Down Under, it's Stan Sport in Australia and Sky Sport in New Zealand. And you can use a VPN to watch your chosen stream from wherever you are in the world.

England vs Wales live stream: Preview

This round two game of the 2024 Six Nations between England and Wales will take place at Twickenham Stadium in London. The start time is at 4.45pm GMT (11.45am ET / 8.45am PT) today, Saturday 10th February, which is 3.45am AEDT in Australia on Sunday morning.

England head to their Twickenham fortress with one win from one, but that victory was far from a joyous affair. They fell behind to tournament outsiders Italy early on and, although they came back to win it, Steve Borthwick's men were unable to kill off the game convincingly. The three-point victory won't quell any fears that England's RWC semi-final was anything more than a fluke, and they'll be desperate for the Owen Farrell-less line-up gels better than they did last weekend.

To do battle with Wales, Borthwick has named the same XV that started against Italy (although prop Ellis Genge is back from injury to make the bench). That means George Ford keeps his place at stand-off, with the impressive Ethan Roots retained in the back row.

Wales' opening game against Scotland was bittersweet. Yes, they ultimately lost 27-26, but the way they played in the second-half to come roaring back into the game gave Warren Gatland and his young guns much to be proud of. Can the Dragons start where they left off in London today?

That hasn't prevented the changes being roundly rung; seven in total to the starting line-up. Ioan Lloyd is preferred to Sam Costelow at number 10, with the impactful Tomos Williams completing a new look half-back partnership. Perhaps the biggest news in the Welsh camp is that experience centre George North also returns today after missing the Scotland game through injury.
