SCOTLAND’s Rugby World Cup warm-up games at home and away to France and at home to Georgia in August will all be shown live on Amazon Prime Video.
It is understood that negotiations are continuing about the national team’s opening match of the summer, at home to Italy on Saturday 29th July. A decision is expected next week both on that match and on the England-Fiji game in August, which was also omitted from this afternoon’s announcement of games to be shown by the streaming service.
As things stand, Amazon will show 13 live games in August, featuring all of the Six Nations sides.
