How to watch Sharks v Lions from outside your country

If you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local rugby coverage, like Sharks v Lions, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.

VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Lions live stream you would at home.

The forwards stay the same, but Ali Price is in for Gareth Davies, Owen Farrell for Dan Biggar. Louis Rees-Zammit in for Anthony Watson and Josh Adams at fullback to replace Liam Williams.

There is only one back on the bench! Maro Itoje is in for Tadhg Beirne, Finn Russell in for Conor Murray, Hamish Watson for Stuart Hogg and Taulupe Faletau for Chris Harris.
The match had already been pushed back by an hour to 8pm local (7pm BST) to allow the Lions sufficient time to get the results from the PCR testing. For Warren Gatland, the Lions head coach, the all-clear will come as a significant relief having already lost Saturday’s scheduled match against Bulls, who suffered their own Covid-19 outbreak. Ten players are due to make their first start of the tour tonight, including Sam Simmonds, Tom Curry and Anthony Watson.
