England vs South Africa rugby union – where and when

England and South Africa's Springboks are set to clash not once, not twice, but thrice in a three test rugby series which you can watch live. The games all take place in South Africa as part of England's summer rugby tour of the country.

Thankfully, it's easy to catch each game as they all start at the same time. Games two and three are on Saturday June 16 and 23, kicking off at 4.05pm BST, 8.05am PT, 11.05am ET, 1:05am AEST Sunday morning, 5.05pm in Joburg.

Not wishing to be upstaged by the FIFA World Cup, England and South Africa started their three-game rugby union test series with an incredible encounter that ended 42-39 in Johannesburg. Game two of the series is on today - and we'll tell you how to live stream it wherever you are.

But the scoreline doesn't tell the whole story of the first game. England flew out of the traps and took a 21-point lead. That should have been unassailable, but Eddie Jones's men failed to make it stick and so the defeat was even more crushing than it looks on paper.

The second game of the series is on Saturday 16 June at the Toyota Stadium in Bloemfontein and it all finishing with a match on Saturday 23 June at DHL Newlands in Cape Town.

You can watch all the action live using the handy guide below. We'll tell you how to watch, even if there's no dedicated broadcast in your country.
