World Rugby has broadcast the tournament on its website dedicated to unsold markets.  Sport24 was the owner of the rights for the inflight/in-ship transmission.  In South Africa, the pay-TV channel SuperSport had the broadcasting rights. To allow the whole country to watch, the open access South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) broadcast the final after reaching an agreement with MultiChoice.  What they intend to do: While Georgia is a growing force in the second division of European rugby, it was fortunate that the Plans for the Rugby World Cup had not been realized, as they would have further marginalized them. To participate in the Rugby World Cup 2019 (“RWC”), each participating Union had to sign the participation agreement. It sets out the conditions for the teams` participation, the obligations they owe and the obligations that World Rugby owes. Simply put, this is a contract that governs the teams` participation in the RWC. World Rugby has opposed proposals by Scottish rugby boss Mark Dodson that they would take legal action if their match against Japan on Sunday did not take place because of Typhoon Hagibis. Pool B started with New Zealand, who beat South Africa 23-13.
New Zealand opened their goal with two attempts in four minutes from George Bridge and Scott Barrett, who gave New Zealand a 17-3 lead at half-time. Pieter-Steph du Toit scored a converted try to bring the score down to 17-10, but two penalties from Richie Mo`unga and Beauden Barrett sealed the result.  In Higashiōsaka, Italy conceded an early attempt against Namibia before fleeing with a bonus points victory with 25 points.
