In this double bill of a Rugby World Cup 2019, Scotland are looking for some sweet revenge after being comprehensively beaten in France last weekend. It should be another fabulous encounter and you can live stream Scotland vs France rugby action from anywhere using this guide. 

Scotland vs France - where and when

Today's international match takes place at the famous Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The game kicks off on Saturday August 24 at 1.10pm BST, so that's 2.10pm back in France.

To be frank, it was a fair walloping that Scotland took at the hands of Les Bleus when they met in Nice last Saturday. The final score was 32-3, but France's 20-point lead at the halfway stage meant the writing was on the wall way before the 80 minutes were up. Full-back Maxime Médard scored two of his team's five tries, while Camille Lopez added a further seven points with the boot from fly-half. Could Jacques Brunel's squad finally be clicking just in time for the World Cup next month?

There were very few positives for the Scots to take back home with them. Gregor Townsend will have a real job on his hands to get them mentally and physically ready for the return leg in Edinburgh. Perhaps the stirring Murrayfield crowd can give them the lift they need.

It should be another telling warm up game for both teams ahead of the World Cup and it's a match you can watch live - no matter where in the world you are - by following our France vs Scotland live stream tips below.

How to live stream rugby union when you're not in your country

If you're outside your country of residence - whether that be the UK or anywhere else (see your other options below) - and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you'll soon discover that you can't as it is location restricted. Fear not, the action is still within your reach. All you need to do is download and install a VPN to effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage (as long as you do so in compliance with the broadcaster's Ts&Cs) without delving into the dangers of an illegal stream.

It's really easy to get started with a VPN - simply download, install, open the app and select the appropriate location.

We've tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best thanks to its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it's compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc). ExpressVPN is excellent and leads our best VPN countdown.

Download ExpressVPN and get the best all-round VPN for streaming. It comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and/or 3 months FREE with an annual plan.
