What are your 2019 Six Nations predictions?

Two decades ago, the Irish were the laughingstocks of the tournament. Fast forward to 2019, and the men in green are looking to defend their 6 Nations title while topping the likes of New Zealand’s All Blacks in international play.

Ireland may be the in-form team, but many are expecting a big performance from England this year. The Lions kick off the campaign at Dublin, where they have only won once in the last 15 years. Can coach Eddie Jones’s men capture a win in what is likely an early title decider?

  1. Hi!
    Does ExpressVPN work with DSTVNow ( on my Windows 10 Notebook? I am from South Africa and reside in the California but would like to watch my Supersport Channels, etc on DSTVNow. I have a DSTV Account (ie: login).

    I also need to know if I can use the Chrome or Firefox ExpressVPN Extension to watch on instead of the your main APP because I dont want it to interfere with my Amazon Prime Account in the US. In other words, I will be using Firefox with your VPM extension for DSTV and Chrome without your extension for US based accounts like Amazon Prime.



  2. Hi I want to watch live rugby games on SuperSport (South Africa), i currently live in SA.

    Do i have to need a DSTV account to watch local Super sport games?

    Why do i need an account to stream when i can watch it on the decoder, please advise. I need clarity regarding the account?

    Awaiting your prompt respond.

  4. I’m in India and want to watch the rugby. Do i also need subscription to SKY TV? Whats best way for me to get the rugby without having to pay for VPN and subscription to a broadcaster?

    1. Hi there,

      If you’re looking for a British broadcast, Sky TV is the way to go. We don’t advise watching free streams since they are almost always low quality and can present a range of internet risks. Besides, a VPN is perfect for watching any online TV show 🙂

        1. To watch everything yes. But sometimes broadcasters show matches for free (e.g. For showed the Super Bowl for American Football free of charge), so it would be a good idea to check the site of the broadcaster and see if they’re airing your favorite matches for free 🙂

    1. Hi John,

      Sounds like a case where ExpressVPN can help! Just use ExpressVPN and connect to an Irish server, and you’ll be all set 🙂

    1. Hi Richard,

      No problem! ExpressVPN does not prevent you from connecting to any web service. In fact, ExpressVPN can help you access your favorite web services from anywhere in the world at high speeds and with added security.

      Just connect to an ExpressVPN server in a country where the service is available, and you’re all set!
