Having ensured qualification to the 2019 Rugby World Cup quarter-finals with their hard-fought win over Fiji, Wales boss Warren Gatland will likely take the opportunity to rotate his squad for the first time in the tournament. It looks set to be an intriguing Rugby World Cup match, and you can watch all the action live and in full in no matter where you are in the world, by following our Wales vs Uruguay live stream guide below.
Despite their shock win over Fiji in their opening game, Uruguay look set to finish bottom of Pool D, and will be determined not to make that an eventuality today.
Live stream Wales vs Uruguay – where and when
This Pool D clash takes place at the 32,000 capacity Kumamoto Stadium in Kumamoto City.
Today’s game kicks off at 5.15pm JST local time – that’s a 9.15am BST start for Welsh fans watching from home and a 5.15am UYT start for folks tuning in from Uruguay.
While Gatland will be resting what must now be some very tired Welsh legs, some of his changes have been forced upon him. Jonathan Davies, Dan Biggar and Josh Adams are all battling injuries and he’ll be relieved if no further names are added to the wounded list after today’s encounter with the battling South Americans.
While it’s likely to be a below strength Wales side on show, they’ll almost certainly have too much for a Uruguay team who will giving a number of so far unused players a run out, safe in the knowledge that this is their last match of this World Cup.
